That is a beautiful,one of a kind shot!!
About the only thing I can shoot around here right now are black birds, and who really wants one of those?
How far away were you from the subject? Just curious.

Thanks Hartster,

My best guess, I was about 100 feet from the Eagle.

This is my favorite One of a kind shot. It was the last pic in a burst series I took of this adult landing in a tree. Pure luck. Right place, right time.

OK!!! You Win
That is the best, one of a kind shots I have seen (in who knows how long). Your a very lucky person to be able to see these magnificent birds of prey up close and to be able to capture them so well is like sweet icing on a cake.

Smac,

Your "one-of-a-kind" is absolutely the finest bird-pix I've ever seen.

Are you planning to post it to the Yahoo Bird-Pix Group? If not, would you mind if I post it? I'm sure the member will appreciate a look and of course, I'll credit you as the ar-teest. :?

Wow, thank you for the fine compliment. Let me check out the Yahoo Bird-Pix Group. Do you have a link? I would love to share the photo. Thanks again,

Another Steve (smac)

Steve from Chico,

A. First, you'll need a Yahoo email address to access the Birds-Pix group (if'n you don't already have one). If you don't go to www.mail.yahoo.com and follow the magic footprints.

B. Then, go to www.groups.yahoo.com.

C. Log in with yourYahoo email address and password.

D.Select the Birds-Pix group and "apply" for membership.

E.After you're approved by the moderator, you can then send an email with attachment to [email protected] and your email will be sent to all of the registered members of the group (about 2000 members total with about 100 active on a regular basis).

The birds-pix group is great because you can see some outstanding bird photos and get insight on techniques, equipment in use, etc. The group seems to be about 60% dSLR users and 40% digiscoping, although there is one clever fellow from South Africa that posts photos taken with a digital camera hand-linked to his Leica binoculars (digi-nocularing?) :lol:

Note: there is also a very good Yahoo Group called "digiscopingbirds". Great advice there about digiscoping techniques, if you're interested.

If you have any problems, send me a PM and I'll try to help.

Steve, Strazeele, France

Steve,
Thank you for the detailed information. I will definitely look into this group. I am very interested in finding out more about digiscoping as well. I have a Nikon CP4500 that I understand is perfect for digiscoping. I also want to come up with a setup for my 8 inch Celestron Telescope. I appreciated all your informantion. I hope to see you at the Bird-Pix site soon.


All the best,

Steve from Chico
