Couple of juvi bald eagles taken on a recent trip to Florida. Spent some quality time with Facebook friend, Dick Vautrinot, on his boat. Had to decide whether to spend a couple of days at Disney or take bird photos. It was a no-brainer and a very good choice. Lots of eagles, osprey, bard owls and anhinga.

Nope. Drove a couple hours north on Thursday evening and then took Friday off and stuck around there Saturday.

420mm, handheld, on a moving boat! I’m impressed! At my age I do good to get a good shot off a tripod at that focal length. Beautiful image.

Thanks Jimm! In camera stabilization helps. I’ll use my ground pod for shorebirds but that is about it.

Love the wing detail on those eagles!

Thank you very much Jimm! Had to crank the shutter speed up to get them in focus.
