Really like your bird photos of Osprey. I was startled by one last summer fishing the Swift in MA when it came low around a bend holding a fish in its beak--I saw his shadow first and I felt like the prey!

Also-what camera did you use and what training have you had with f-stops, and other tech stuff; I use

an Olympus totally waterproof digital 6megapixel with 10X zoom--so easy to put in my vest--and get fairly good results. Keep up your photo work-you have the skill!

A shot of an eagle taken this weekend while on a steelheading trip:

Graham, we probably saw - no kidding - a thousand bald eagles during the course of the week. :devil: Most were paired up, and during the middle of the day they could be seen flying high in the sky in groups of 5-15.

New member here, first post. Been lurking awhile and somehow I missed this forum. Took last year off fishing to devtoe time to learning photography. Now Im looking for ways to combine my two passions.

Arent many forums around that celebrate both.

 

Anywho on to some of my pics and a few of my bird shots for now. Hundreds to share but Rome wasnt built in a day. :) I enjoy bird photography and in particular Bird in Flight (BiF), Im a real sucker for it.

 

I'll start with Birds of Prey

Stopped by a local bird sanctuary after work on Tuesday morning and managed to get these shots of some nest building ospreys.

Here's 3 more shots. Took an entire roll of those birds over a period of 2 hours. A local constuction site "donated" the rag in his talons. The other white object in the nest is a plastic bag unfortunately.

Camera: Canon EOS 3

Lens: Tamron 100 - 300 mm, 58mm opening, f=5.6, 1/1500 sec

Film: Fugi Reala ISO 100,

Filter: Tiffen circular polorizer

 

Wulff,

Your pictures are something else! WOW!!! Looks like I'm going to have to take a loan out and get a lens with some more power to it. hehehe
