Yesterday I went over to Coeur d'Alene Lake to try my hand at photographing the eagles. They come to the lake every year at this time to feed on the spawning salmon. The day started out kinda grey and not much activity, but then this guy flew right past me and perched at a location where I could get kinda close. I watched him for over an hour the whole time the light kept getting better and better. He seemed pretty content just sitting there but finally a police officer drove by on the freeway and the siren spooked him. I have some shots of him flying away as well, and I will post eventually. No one wants to see the same stuff over and over ;-)

 

While I was shooting him, a few more photographers showed up. Wow, talk about feeling inadequate. Some of them had lenses as big as my leg! Oh well I think I did OK with my 18-200 and for my first time!

 

Hope you all had a great weekend :-)
