another nice day today, so i blew off mowing the lawn and took my FZ20 out on the road... wound up near a small farming town an hour north of Seattle, and caught these shots.

the first is ahawk that caught me by surprise. i turned around and there he was, i didn't really have time to set anything, just tracked him (a red-dot might have made this easier, but i don't have one on my camera...) and hoped the autofocus could keep up. the shutter speed was a bit slow, so he's not as clear and sharp as i'd like, but at least i got him!! therestare shots of a couple of eagles sitting in a tree about 20 yards from the road...

You nailed those Bald eagles good squirl. Nice shots and I really like the first one.

I guess the Eagles I been watching must not like me as well.....out again today and no closer than 300-400 yds:sad:

If that first eagle picture were mine, I would have already printed it on a A4 sheet and would be looking for a frame...Fred

I love your first eagle shot - right on! I'm really envious of your nice weather - I won't be mowing my lawn for atleast another 2 months (maybe that's not a bad thing?).

Great shots Squirl033.

The only thing I can lament is the lack of Exif in the files, to know the metering type, f, F and other data.

Great eagle shots!

They are awesome birds. No wonder they are symbols of strength.

Cheers,

Max
