  • Caught; right footed, right handed, right lens

    Myself and a friend tormented a mutual friend this morning until he took us out in his boat to feed the Sea Eagles.
    I got these two. Sometimes, just sometimes I just manage to get something right.




    Oh and by the way just remember that the OMD is not good for birds in flight.

    Jon,
    What superb images of such a magnificent bird. These are a great capture and show that motion shots with the OM-D are obviously achievable - though you did tell us on our trip to Skye that their nickname is the 'barn door' due to their size.

        Nice.

        It's also nice to see the White-tailed Eagles doing well after they were reintroduced.
        It's the image that's important, not the tools used to make it.

              WOW great pictures! I have seen BIF pics from an OMD before, but not like this. Beautiful.

                Wow, fantastic shots. About the only BIF we get round here are seagulls.

                    Yes, I can see why BIFs just don't work with this camera. You must be disappointed ....

                        Really really good shots, boy I bet you were pleased with those. Especially as they are impossible with an E-M5

                          Thank you very much for your kind comments.
                          John, No, they are not the Portree pair there are four pairs nesting and/or holding territories near to where I live.
                          This female was or is from near Loch Harport and we managed to find her near Gesto.
                          We had already caught a bucket full of Mackerel so we threw her a couple. Job done.
                          I guess I'm lucky to have several pairs near me and access to boats to go out and see them now and again.
