Eagle in Flight
January 23, 2009

I drove up to Grafton, Illinois, yesterday to see if I could catch some eagles on the bluffs of the Mississippi. Well, there were quite a few eagles soaring around, but, wow, do you need a long lens to capture these guys. The longest I had was 300mm, but even on my FX-sized D300 that was too short. Distances are deceiving. If only someone would gift me with a new 600mm f4. ;-)
