Day 13 ... A COLD day for Eagle watching

January 13, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

We saw at least a half-dozen eagles at Smithville Lake today. As many times as I go out eagle watching and as many times as I've captured photos, I never tire of them. Such a beautiful, powerful creature.  

This isn't the best photo I've captured of an eagle but it's not 'bad.' The longest lens I own is 300mm and it was at 300. And cropped A. LOT.

I hope to capture yet another, better image this winter but for now, this is my first in a few years. It was so cloudy and beyond bitter cold out there this afternoon. We were late getting out there and it was close to sunset (had it been a sunny day) so that didn't help me out either but, I got a shot. I hope you enjoy.

I'm not sure how far we were from it. I'm not a great judge of distance. This was shot with my lens at 300mm.

Here it is cropped.

And, for anyone who might be interested in boating and/or skiing right now, I took this one for YOU! ;D
