This Bald Eagle. Halieetus leucocephalus, landed in the field west of our house and I saw a flash of white from my window by the computer. I ran out and grabbed a couple shots before it took off. This is the only one we have seen near out property.
I am a rank amateur birdwatcher and avid amateur bird photographer living near Conway, NC. Being retired allows me plenty of time to devote to the hobby/obsession. Most of my bird shots are taken in our yard near Burnt Bridges. I shoot with a Nikon D300 and D200 using the 500mm f/4 and 200-400mm f/4 VR lenses. The 500mm lives on a Wimberley head on a sturdy carbon fiber tripod. I have recently, June, 2012, purchased a 600mm Nikon f/4 which is now my main birding lens.
