Took the dog for a walk at Belfair State Park. Noted a bunch of eagles were flying around. Mostly juvenile Bald Eagles looking for food and trouble.

Bright overcast day, about 62 F, no wind. Tide was out to about 350 yards from where I positioned myself, although I do move from spot to spot.

D500, 500pF (what else?), 1/4000, f 8, ISOs between 800 and 3200, no CPL EC +1.0- Handheld!

The young eagles flew over and around me for about 600+ frames! Many ruined by heat distortion but a few came out! Took 876 images altogether! Other birds presented themselves and I will post photos of them as well.

We arrived at 11:10 AM PDT. Left 12:15 PM PDT!

Download and enjoy!

Thanx for viewing and commenting. Fun day, short though it was. The eagles just kept coming back to where I was and orbiting. I did take over 600 images of the eagles alone!

Outstanding, Tim. Must have been really exciting to have all those opportunities.

Thanx for viewing and commenting! Yes one of those days. The photo conditions were not so great. Many great shots of Barn Swallows were ruined by Heat Distortion. Causes the AF to mud-cue on the subject in the box and miss-focuses low, right or left or?
