Default Frist Bald Eagle this year

I was out golfing with friends trying to reduce my score by skipping holes and shooting birds instead of birdies. I didn't hold up play but did get some shots. This works out great as I have 3 spotters on the lookout for me, someone to talk to and something to do between shots. The birds are used to people and for the most part ignore me. All shots with K30 and DAL 55-300 and shot on the same day and same round of golf. This has been the best round for birds this year and I managed to shoot par on 2 holes.

Gday Hans

Dunno what handicap your golf is ... but from looking at these, I don't reckon that your photography needs one

All well done - esp the brace of continuous ones of the osprey

Thanks Phil, the Osprey was hopping from foot to foot, they turned the lights on and they were getting hot

All I can say is WOW! I'd sure like to visit your golf course. Since I've only tried hitting a ball once in my life I'd be someone you wouldn't have to worry about beating, especially with such an great selection of birds there!

What an amazing series - such diversity of species, and such a great job capturing the details of each one!
