Things are about to get real busy for me and I decided to take a mental health day today. Went out to see the birds.
The midday bite is the worst possible time for a catch but I had no choice, always see something, even on a bad day. But it was shore sparse pickin's.
I stuck the 400mm ƒ2.8 on with the 2x extender, damn that thing is heavy.
I did the loop with little success and then drove out to the Walker Ponds.
I believe that it is the same bird I shot previously, that you can see a few blog posts down. His white head has now filled in, fully mature.
He eventually dropped lunch and alighted on a pole far out of my lens and camera range.
I went back to the reserve and took my hike. Very little to see, no harriers, caught the vermilion for a split second flash of red.
But hey, any day I shoot a mature bald eagle is a good day, I will take it. Went back to try to find him again, no luck.
Hope to get back there soon and dial my equipment in.
