Eagles landing, leaving, and sitting.
Posted By: jmc7104, 02-19-2008, 06:08 PM


This one was with 300mm prime f4 old m42 screw pentax. Propped on door window.

Same lens another tree, appearently saw a fish in river and just had time for a grab shot.

This is one on a very cold icey morning waiting for the sun to warm him/her up.

Juvinile with fish for lunch.

Success, almost as big as anything that I caught last year

Bird in flight pictures are really challenging with manual focus, I've been going to a local spot for eagles a lot lately and practice really is helping. the magnifying eyepiece has helped too as my eyes are getting bad Keep posting them pictures

Thanks Tom. I am working on getting a couple faster lens in the 300-400 class Have an old m42 f8-500mm pentax and on a super sunny day it does rather well even with a 1.7 extender on it. But everything on it is manuel as is most m42 lenses
Looked at your photo gallery great shots and I especially love the old B61 Mac. Next to wildlife old machinery including automobiles is high on my prioritys. jim
