Went around to the area of the dam and after awhile did not see any eagles there so decided to leave. After putting my camera up, this adult bald Eagle flew into sight at close range. Needless to say after I scrambled to get back in position, it was already gaining altitude.

Yesterday was a day of much needed rain in this area and was.... well, raining. Naturally it wasovercast and graywith resultant bad light conditions. I went to the lake anyway just to look.

This one appears to be an adult at about the same location as the picture of the pair. It was drizzling and I took this through the window (window down) and thought for grins I would use the digital zoom. First time I ever used it.

Wish I had those oppertunities......you will find digital zoom works better with lots of light.

Keep up the good work

VP-

Looks like you're getting the bug now, too. Nice captures given the conditions! Keep'em coming. Its nice that you also give info on the approximate distances as that speaks to what the resulting photo portends for others...

Hi genece.... it is awsome just to havean opportunity to see these Bald Eagles even at the farther distances. It took several excursions to locate them, now all I have to do is get a decent photo.



Telecorder.....lol, that bug has a bite. Birds of prey always catch my eye, most of the shots I take are too far but some turn out ok. Just not worth posting. A lot of mine would be considered birdscapes I suppose instead of portraits. Hope you get a decent chance at yours.

I will post a shot of an Osprey I took several months ago.
