Eagle Eye .... way up there!
It's always on my list to photograph an eagle; we often see them here but catching them with a camera lens is challenging. On a drive this week, we took a lane we hadn't driven before. As we anticipated, it ended in someone's barnyard. On the way, though, we saw two full farm ponds. Canada geese are paired and settling down; far above in a bare snag sat the eagle. Two problems: the sun was almost directly overhead, so the eagle was in its own shadow; the branch was about 30 feet high which tested my 400m lens to the max.
