Early morning fishing, with the eagles.
Lens: DA 560 Camera: K-1 Shutter Speed: 1/3200s Aperture: F8 
Posted By: KiloHotelphoto, 11-16-2016, 05:43 PM

Today was the first day I wished I would have saved up some more and bought the FA600 F/4 instead of the DA560. I got to the river about 06:50 and the sun was just coming up and there was lots of action. Forty minutes later and I got the shots I've been trying to get, eagles everywhere, I didn't know where to point the lens. I was shooting in TAV at 1/3200 and F8 the ISO was at 3200 and most of the shot did not come out good but the day wasn't a total loss. I am a little jealous of those Nikon 800mm, I could use the extra reach but I don't want that bill.
