Thanks so much Lance!! The weather looks like it's going to finally warm up this week so hopefully soon we will get some birds back in the park. Yay!

Just a quick series of one Eagle wanting what the other has and the other Eagle showing it off is if playing with the other Eagle.

Loving the Z9. It just locks up the the subject even when flying through the branches!

Just a few random Eagle shots. It is the Shad run so the Eagles are at the Dam for about 4-6 weeks so I spend a lot of time with them as the next big influx of non resident Eagles won't be till November. So, sorry if it's a lor of Eagles right now. Osprey images will be coming in a couple weeks though!






This Eagle fished just 50 feet in front of me. Making lemonade from lemons

Shot 11am in full Sun. cranked the shutter for the mood.

Uncropped and no sharpening, just camera matching profile Portrait and exported.

Just to show this Eagles isn't a dirty bird. I would call this a birth mark

Too close for 800mm so I cropped in for a closeup

Thanks for the nice eye candy George, Luke, Bruce, Eric, Lance and others I may have missed.

Before the latest firmware update I had come to the conclusion that the 1.4 on this lens was not going to cut it for action/bif. I am just back from a trip out west and the 800 was a great bird travel lens. The last day I decided to try the 1.4/800 combo on some swallows and I was pleasantly surprised on how well the af and tracking did. For me it seems the latest firmware update actually made a noticeable improvement to an already good AF system. I was able to track swallows that were small in the frame AND swallows flying straight at me which is crazy good considering how fast they are.

Kudos to Nikon for a great lens and camera body in the Z9 with the updates. Looking forward to a smaller form factor body that will compliment the Z9.

Just this tiny backlit bushtit today. While not the most impressive from the technical perspective - I like the overall feel of this one.

Z9 / 800 6.3 - W/ 1.4 TC. Cloudy that morning. Images would have been cleaner had there been more light. I am still impressed with the performance of this combo. All were pretty heavy crops.

I've been there yes but have not seen the mink for a while now. It will show up maybe it's nesting somewhere safe for now.
