Default Eagle at the Beach

I have lived here at the beach all my life and this is a first for me...I am sure there have been other eagles here in the past but I wasn't a "Birder", as the wife calls me, back then...This guy is very hard to get a good shot of because his favorite perch is about 200 yrds from the closest point unless you have waders and tromp through mud up to your knees...There is nest building going on and we are waiting for the pair to be together...Hopefully this spring we will figure out how to get to the nest and get baby shots...These are not up close and personal but I though interesting enough to share anyway...

Given all the distance, a very nice effort and result. Exhilarating, isn't it. Maybe a small raft or canoe? Can't wait to see if you can get any eaglets.

Cheers, Steve

Thanks for the comment Steve....Agree on the "very nice effort and result"...I use the 100-400 lens with 1.4tc...But at that distance lots of funny things happen with the shots at times...Gonna do my best to wade, paddle, tromp, slosh, levitate, etc.....hahaha....to get to the nest....Stay tuned...
