Well, all that crave big lenses, there are times when they are NOT the best for birding. Such as this.

And another bonus shot of mature male.

You win some you lose some :)

Nothing wrong with that 2nd shot though.

Thanks on the compliment on 2nd shot MA. I just wish I could have been about 10 more yards back on that first one. The snow was somewhat a pain also though, as it was coming down quite hard. Sometimes i like the added effect though, especially on in-flight shots.

it's nice to see that you miss a few shots HBG!;)

but the second is a lovely 'consolation' shot!

Oh believe me I miss LOTS. I have about 140 shots of these few eagles and I think I kept 10 that I liked.

Of course it did. And all us "little" folk with our meager 200mm lenses are drolling. :wall-an:

As for the meager 200mm, I wish I would have had mine on for first shot Matt.
