Dull day but Mrs Scouse and I took an afternoon ride and a picnic lunch.

Nowhere near the amount of Eagles as Monday but some still posing if you can get close enough.

1/ Sitting in the tree doing preflight checks at 300 mm

2/ Take off at 200 mm before he turned his white butt my way

70-300 at too slow a speed...!

Excellent captures Ken; especially so with the overcast sky behind the birds. Love the pose in shot #2, that is a classic eagle in flight composition.

Thanks guys, I didn't think I was going to get any shots but I enjoyed them.

The tree I had 24 birds in had just two. what was fun seeing more cars than eagles looking. Monday we were on our own.

Well done Ken!

Love the tail-fan on the BIF. Don't think he can open it up much more than that.

Thank you guys. That tail fan with the low light coming through is my fav part of the shot. Chi
