Eagle

We have been anchored in Claydon Bay for the last few days along with our new friends aboard M/V Dearleap. I will be doing a post on their beautiful wooden 1929 Hoffer Beeching 85 footer shortly but here is a quick picture with Iron Lady in the background.

We have been prawning and trying for salmon – the latter without much success – hopefully it is because the season hasn’t really started and not because of our technique. At any rate, a nice batch of prawns for dinner tonight.

There have been several eagles fishing around the cove in the evening so I dragged out my Nikon D7100 with my 18-200 lenses and set the camera to 7 frames per second and headed out in Beer Can (our skiff)for a photo op.

After racking up several hundred photos and narrowing the lot down, the following are the best of what I got.

D71 1017 Edit Edit

Before heading up here, I had an order in for a Tamron 150 – 600 lens. For reasons unknown the release date was originally scheduled for January for Nikon bodies. At last check, it is still not available.

I cropped several of the photos to blow the picture of the eagle up but that reduces resolution – really could have used that Tamron lens.

Oh well.

      When Ron gets here with his big boy lense and the salmon are running hard, we should get great shots of most of the locals including grizzly bears. I thought they were the bad boys up here but it turns out that the cougars are in terms of threats to us.

    Just beautiful. We have a nesting trio here in Venice Fl and I just am amazed at their stature. Wonderful birds. Great pictures, thank you!
