White-tailed Eagles



Merikotkat



Näimme lauantaina jäällä pari merikotkaa varisten seurassa mutustamassa jotain kalan perkuuksia. Jaan nyt nuo kotkakuvatkin, vaikka ovat ihan mössöä. Linnut olivat meistä reilun 200m päässä ja croppasin kuvia valtavasti.

Aika makeeta nähdä merikotkia! Ne on suuria, noi mustat pikkuiset on variksia. Näiden kuvien myötä alkaa haaveilemaan vähän pidemmästä putkesta kameraan, eipä tuo 55-300mm näköjään riitä.


I'm sharing these photos of Sea Eagles. These are soooo blurry, I had to crop these photos a lot. Those birds were over than 200m away from us. Our Nikkor 55-300mm lens wasn't enough!! But it was so cool to see those!! Those "small" birds are crows.

  1. We don't have too much eagles in our region, but we have houseflies, gnats, pill bugs, spiders - and some crows as well of course.

    And here's the link for your next NIKKOR "eagle catching" lens... ;-)

    1. We looked that too with my hubby but it might be a bit too expencive for us. :D That 800mm would be x1.5 in our camera so I could been photographing that eagles face and take macro shots. :D

    2. ...in addition to the rediculous price of € 17129,- you need a burden bearer to carry the lens with a weight of 4,6 kg from location to location...
      ...for the money you can buy at least two tame eagles!!!

      ;-)

    1. Kyllä vaan! En edes harkinnut lähteväni jäälle kun -20c ja merellä hyytävä tuuli lisäksi. Ja vasta reilun viikon ollu pakkaset niin en kovin uskalla jäälle mennä. Niin ja tuskin olisi lähelle edes päässyt vaan olisivat lähteneet pois. :)

  11. Great photos, birds of this distance are difficult to make, the meeting between eagles and crows can be very interesting.

    1. They were very peaceful together. I think that someone had been fisfing on the ice and left something very delicious there and they were eating that..some fish maybe.. I was thinking that those crows were very brave birds. :-D

  12. thanks for sharing the cold and ice and snow; I certainly feel the 'worlds apart' theme here. You are conditioned well to make it out amongst the bad weather to take these wonderful photographs

  18. I really enjoyed this series of images! ANY photo of an eagle is a good one! Your scenes of winter are really interesting since we have no snow or ice here in central Florida.
