Too close.

DSC08571-Edit by Johan Olsson, on Flickr

Perched right next to me so had to reposition tripod, reframe (at 250mm ) and refocus. Fraction before I tripped the shutter something above took it's interest and ended up cutting off the beak

Pair of Bald Eagles. This very close to home. I see them often, but seldom in the same tree like this.



Probably the female, since the larger bird.



Probably the male.

Nice. Hopefully you can go back for more.
Seems to be a strong green cast to the pics. What WB do you have set?

Green Heron at 32 Days. This is last in series as all three are now out of the nest but are still living in surrounding trees. Glad to see that all three made it to adulthood.

I can look, but that was taken minutes before a thunderstorm and the sky often looks greenish like that here right before a storm.
