So yesterday in the afternoon I decided to go look for some raptors, Bald Eagles, Hawks, Owls, etc., this is the right time of year of course. Saw 2, so far away I don't know what they were. Light was not great, but when did that ever stop me anyway, eh? So, off to the Reserve off Fir Island Road. And what do I find but a bunch of GBH, way off in the distance and a few shore birds. I'm about to leave when this guy decides to get at least close enough to shoot: Feeding GBH and Willets, at least I think they are Willets. Notice that the GBH has 2 fish in his beak, and I like the water dripping off the end: Standing GBH and Willet: So then he decides to fly. Ever wonder if the D70 can track a bird in flight? After I blew the first couple of shots, my bad, I think it worked rather well: In Flight #1, my favorite of the 3: In Flight #2: In Flight #3: So then I walk back to my car to go search for more raptors, and I take my dog for a short walk after packing all my gear in the car. I come back and find this Robin sitting on the fence by my car. I don't think I have enough time to get the tripod out and set up, so I grab the camera with the 500mm mounted, plus the TC-14E, plus the Wimberly Sidekick and handhold the whole thing leaning against my car for this full-frame shot: Robin with Nesting Material: All in all, not a bad day, even if all the Raptors in the State of Washington took the day off :lol: .
