The birds...they taunt me by illmatar The birds...they taunt me by illmatar
Ah the frustration of being a photographer - especially a mostly clueless photographer.

Bald eagle. Just....sitting....right....there......

And I'm on an air boat on a windy day.

This was almost a good picture. *sniff*

actually the eagle came out pretty clear, the image has focus in a singular area(the eagle) which gives it a good "real" quality.

Wow!! never mind the quality of the photo, you were lucky to spot a wild bald eagle casually soaking up some sun and on the look out for prey. Pretty amazing stuff! I can still see a fair bit of detail.

They are pretty common where I live....not that I ever tire of seeing them.

Still looks good to me:) The Bald Eagle on my parental unit's lake will not fly close enough to even get a good shot.

Thanks! :) I have one that likes to hang out on the lights at my school - but he's a bastard and takes off every time he sees me. I have more butt shots of that effing bird! I was SOO excited that this guy stayed put...but the boat didn't. Of maybe 30 shots this one is the only semi-decent one.
