Back to the birds.

After a summer of no birds in flight, I've been able to get out a couple of times this fall and photograph some bald eagles. I hope to get quite a bit of eagle action this winter.

These were taken at lock and dam 13 in Fulton Illinois. Canon 5d Mark IV, Canon 300mm f4L with Canon 1.4 teleconverter.

    Nice images. Love the blue skies with the Bald Eagle.

    Thanks,

    Tried out my new, to me, Canon 400mm f5.6L yesterday. The eagles didn't really cooperate, but I did what I could. So far I'm liking the lens. It's not as easy to take static shots, since there's no IS, but that shouldn't be that big of a deal with the flight shots.

    These were taken at lock and dam 13 on the Mississippi River.

    Found a couple of eagles enjoying lunch yesterday.

    When this guy swooped in, the youngster took off.
