The Bald Eagles are Back!

by Gerald Janauer on March 20, 2010

I haven’t done too much shooting recently, but the weather has been amazingly warm over the last week and my wife and I were lured outside this afternoon.  We prepared our bicycles for their first ride, and headed up the road.  Lo and behold, we’d barely gotten off the property and we saw our bald eagle sitting closer to the shore of our pond than he has in a while.  I just had to go back and get the camera and take a shot before we continued on our ride.  The shot below is taken with my Nikon D300 and the 80-400 Nikkor lens at 400 mm.  Hopefully we’ll see more of this bird over the next few days and weeks.

Wonderful picture, a real treasure that represents the best of our nation. My grandson Jake Houston aspires to be a world class digital photographer and I assume you are his inspiration. Thanks.

Gerald,

Thanks for sharing this. As always, your photographs are amazing!

Gerald Janauer 04.10.10 at 12:41 pm

Thanks, Jeff. Been a little bit slow with my photography this season, hopefully will get going a little as spring progresses! Also… another eagle to come soon!

Hi Ed,

Thanks for the comment! Jake was in class with me yesterday, and he’s been doing some good work. Now, if I can get him to be a little more responsible with his equipment… I’ve had to remind him several times to be more careful with his camera when setting it down.

This shot actually made my heart jump! Majestic and beautiful! Aren’t we lucky to live in an area where we are able to witness such beauty?

Gerald Janauer 04.23.10 at 8:40 am

Barb,

Thanks for looking! This one was a stroke of luck, really. I like it, although it’s really only good in the web sized image. My bird in flight (BIF) photography technique needs quite a bit of help! (And some outrageously expensive fast long lenses would help a lot too!!!)

Gerald
