After Breakfast

After Breakfast

Able to get fairly close to this wild eagle (I think his goose breakfast had mellowed him), I only had to use my 300mm lens and not "Big Bertha". The photo was shot out of the moon roof of the car.

Getting this close is very rare here in Missouri. Most Eagle shots are about 10 zillion miles away and offer even "Big Bertha" a major challenge.

Having just finished a large meal, I guess this guy didn't care that much about my presence. Even seeing my car, he gave me a couple of minutes of his time before he moved on. It was a wonderful treat to be able to take this shot with just the 300mm.
