... and I'm taking pics of eagles on Saturday. smile

First 2 pics are taken from a tripod, Nikon D7000 with Nikkor 500mm f8 Reflex lens. I also bought a cheap aftermarket remote cable release since my old one won't fit this new body.





I added my 1.4x teleconverter to take more pics from this spot, but I didn't review the first pics close enough. Either my glass fogged in the cold, the extra length made the camera shake more, or I simply didn't get it focused right. They were all very fuzzy, and I had some very good subjects posing for me. Frown, Sad

Then I moved locations to the local hydroelectric dam, where the eagles frequently hunt. Had to remain in my vehicle, and worked hand-held shooting out my rolled-down window.

Nikon D7000, Tamron 18-270mm Di II. This is my only vibration-reduction lens.















This was more or less my field of view at this location. Used Live View to hold the camera out of the window as I took this.



So all together I got a new Nikon D7000 body, an aftermarket wired remote shutter release, and an aftermarket battery for a spare. I am considering a battery pack / vertical hand grip yet. The entire package arrived in 2 shipments on Friday after purchasing on Tuesday night.

Now this afternoon I was taking some watch pics. This time with a 1990's vintage Tamron 90mm f2.5 AF lens attached.
