Sunday 15 April 2012: American Bald Eagle
The day dawned with a clear blue sky, so I thought it right to pop down the road to The Hawk Conservancy. I haven't been for a while, and the flying demonstrations are always very good.
This was taken at the end of the 'Valley of the Eagles' display. Lots of other good photos from the day (and a previous day) can be found here; today's start from the birds sitting on the footpath sign.
Unexpectedly bumped into a friend and fellow photographer who kindly lent me his 400 f/5.6L - very nice, and got shots I wouldn't normally be able to get. Makes it more tricky to follow the birds in flight with the narrower view, but I guess that comes with practice...
