Default Little birdie high in an Oak tree.

When I was out this weekend, I walked by a very large Oak tree, and just happened to look up as I passed under it. There was a bird just setting on one of the bigger branches. He didn't make a sound, just keep looking around. Since I had my new Oly 70-300mm lens, I thought that I would try to capture a shot or two of this little birdie setting in the tree. I was glad I had the bigger lens with me.

Photos to follow.

Hi Steven,

Good catch. I've never come across an Eagle. You not only managed to see it but also captured a great series of images.

I do have to say that the last image is my favorite. The lighting, composition, and his profile make it a very special image.

Very well done.

Zig

Hi Steven,

Great shots. I never know the 70-300 can take pics so sharp. Guess it all depends on the photographer. Good to know this lens falls into good hands
