Stick Drop "Bullseye"

Lining up the drop


Change the stick angle


Adjust to the right


A little back to the left


Bullseye - Time to go get more construction material for the re-model.

Oh WOW! What a fabulous series of unbelievable shots. I've never seen anything like this before. Not even on TV. This is great! I can't believe you caught this on film much less wittnessed it. HA You did a beautiful job capturing these pictures and I love your captions.:-)

Thank you so much for sharing. Wonderful photos. Teree

Yep, Roger, you do get great BIF photos. All very good. Do you use remote shutter along with the tripod?

Teree, Fred & Jerry

Thanks all for taking the time to look and for the kind words.

Jerry, I do not use a tripod for my BIF photos. Hand held with my RDS sight and burst mode. I spend a lot of time hiding under trees and bushes and many photos are taken while I am sitting or kneeling. I have tried a tripod and a monopod but they are way to slow to move and get set up to get a picture. If I can I try to find a branch or etc. to rest the camera on. One thing I have notice is when they are coming towards the nest they will change direction according to the wind so they can use the wind to help them land. Here in the high country the wind swirls change very often so it is diffulcult to guess which way they may turn.
