Gone Fishing






I need a bigger faster lens.

I went with my friend Laura to Conowingo Dam in northern Maryland. (You can read about it here.) The reason the eagles like the place is the good fishing (humans like the fishing there too).

As you can see, I got a number of images of eagles with fish. But upon further study you'll notice two things about these images. The eagles are small, even though I cropped the images. And not one is of an eagle actually catching a fish.

Like I said, I need a bigger faster lens. You think Santa reads my blog?

It would be nice if Santa was reading our blogs. However I think you caught some cool shots.

Regardless Steve some wonderful shots and memories for you, I use a 70-300mm lens for these type of shots and nothing could make me give it up. Love Raptors.

Rumor has it that Tammy is giving out lenses...but even without one, those shots are stunning.

Hmm, if Santa's reading, I better mention a couple of lenses myself! ;)

These are fun shots, nonetheless!
