    Eagle photos.....

    So the other day we had a pair of wedge tail eagles here the other day, I got some snaps of one of them. I am going to warn you that they arent the best shots because i was about half a km away from them. I did get zapped by a fence trying to get closer shots for you guys but they were gone by the time i got there. Looking at the photos you can get an idea how big these birds are
    (peter no comments on me needing the other lense LOL I know)

    I wouldn't tell you something you already know What you really need is to practice your eagle calls...and tell them to come closer

    mmmm. roadkill would work but go out and catch a feral bunny or something unless you like to spotlight with your car (a fav past time of my mates.. were all hicks). but if you cant get bunny bits maybe the better lens will work! i hate taking 'shadow pics' i have about 4million of them of some yellow tailed black toos. so i know the frustration of not having the equipment on hand. nice all the same.
