Default First Post..*****eamin' Eagle (117k)

Ok, figured I'd see how the new board works. Got out yesterday to an ecomuseum" near us. Cloudy and rain, but I persisted with my Sigma 70-200EX and the 2X TC Sigma. No flash. So you can see the softness and shallow DOF. Still, not bad for wide-open at 400mm.

Default Thanks Christie

It was my first time with captive birds. I wish I could have spent more time and used different lenses, but the kids weren't as excited as I was about the whole experience, so we had to move on.

Default Evocative image

Bob,

A very evocative image, the screaming eagle. Something about it conveys such power and strength. Probably why our forefathers selected it as a national symbol! Can't get enough images of these fine creatures, they are stunning.

Default Thanks Oz.

I could have spent the whole day with them.

This one was actually screaming at ME. I got a bit close, and it started some territorial defending posturing and vocalization. I backed off.

Default Impressive shot!

I always wondered what their tongues looked like - quite similar to our own it seems!

Nice catch! Even with the rain and overcast you got some nice color and detail. I'll bet a little work with levels would spark up the image a bit?

Best regards,

Lin

SOme levels work would help this one out. I used my laptop to process this pic, and the LCD never lets me get it right.
