Default I only managed to get One Photo today

Out of all the Hawks, Eagles and Trumpeter Swans I saw today, I was only able to grab one photo today.

They were either too far away to get a decent shot (even with my 400 mm lens) or there wasn't a spot to pull off the road, or like this guy he only gave me the time to grab One Photo.

Some days are like that!

Here is a photo that I took today:

Pretty shot Dick....I need to ask though...Why would you delete the background on shots like this...Isn't there something that the background could add to this shot...
Just an observation...Heck, I don't have the patience to trace around the bird to delete the back ground...

John,
I didn't delete the background in the photo. All the background was is Bright Gray Sky. The power line is high enough that I just put the lens out the window of my truck and snapped the photo. So the photo is taken at a pretty strong angle from below.
I was across the road from him, a distance of about 40 feet and he was about 25 feet above the ground.

I'm like you, I just do not have the time or patience to trace around a bird to lift him out of a photo layer.

A photo like this one would actually be easy to take the background out and add in your own, you could put it in front of a majestic mountain seen....lol.

Good shot.
