Very nice.  

 

Just marvel at how easily you can come across Eagles!  I have to travel 2 1/2 hours on the highway to shoot them.  Mind you, there have been sightings down by the lake this year.  This is a first for frequency!  So, there is hope. :)

Thanks Art. Most of my eagle shots are taken after about a 10 minute drive. Jeff

Nice work, I like the second one.

Thanks, Dennis.

Thanks Ron. Yes. Their nest is about 1/4 of a mile from this perch. It sits right along the road so is easy to see in the winter time when the leaves are off the trees. Jeff

I forgot to mention that your focus is real good on these birds, did you recalibrate your lens?

No. I havn’nt done anything with the lens. It might be my 61 year old eyes,but sometimes my shots don’t look sharp when other people say they look fine.
