About Me

My photo

Anything outdoors!  Tornadoes, eagles, blizzards, or auroras.  If it is in the sky, running through the woods or swimming in the water, I'm there!

New teleconverter and my eagle neighbors

Decided to support the economy with the purchase of a 2x teleconveter for the 70-200 f2.8 lens. I'm pretty happy with it.

Took it out this evening to check on the resident eagles. The light was horribly flat again and the eagles didn't want to come in a close as usual (all shots are at least 150 to 200 yards out) so this was a good test.

All these pics are crops shot at 400mm f5.6 so considering, it will be fun to see what this thing will do when the sun is shining on them. The leaves are rapidly appearing so our nest viewing days are limited.

The eaglets should start becoming more active within a few weeks. On yeah...wood ticks are out now so be sure to check the kids when they come in. No Lymes Disease please.
