Very nice, Houston!!! There's just something about the mottling on the balds that I never get tired of gazing at! I'm anxiously awaiting their arrival here along the Mississippi, should bewithin afew weeks.They just so graceful & regal! Houston, just out of curiousity, could you tell me a little about the set-up of the shots? Was it flying low over a lake or river?Yourposition for them was excellent!Seems like they(immatures) like to fly higher when I get to see them....maybe I just haven't been living life right??
Thanks for the series & Here's to being glad that Ben Franklin was outvoted!
Hi Ron, Ill gladly tell you anything I can. I'm visiting my daughter in the suburbs of Orlando and I usually go out to Lake Jesup during the day while she is working. I go down thru the woods at a local park and walk the shore line until I find a place that opens up a little to give me a view both ways left and right. Try to wear clothing that matches the surroundings. I've made lots of good captures at a particular spot that I found. I've seen the Juvenile balds flying both high and low. The trees at this spot were very tall Cyprus. I saw this one coming in toward me from the middle of the lake. He was fairly high and turned a little before he got to me and then landed in one of the Cyprus trees not 50 ft from me and because of the tree between us I could not see him. All of the shots I got were when he was coming in and turning except the one when he left going the other way. I dont know what camera-lens outfit you have but the most important piece of info I could give you is what someone on this forum gave me, and that is practice, practice, practice. I was using my Canon 20D, 100-400L IS lens and Tamron 1.4x TC. Hope this helps
