Recently we took a weekend trip to Conowingo Dam (Fishermen's Park) near Havre de Grace Maryland to view the bald eagles. We were told 90 eagles had been sighted recently. I learned quickly that I really needed a longer lens to capture the birds well; somewhere between 500 to 600 millimeter would have worked better. My images were not very close and not very sharp, but I’ll show you one of the better ones. Maybe I can try again next year.
When I am not pleased with the images I get, I sometimes look around at what might be better. I captured a photo of 3 fishermen by the dam in the early morning golden light and one of the vultures perching on a log. There were many vultures easily accessible and lots of stray cats as well.
