One nice thing about photographing eagles in flight is that they soar. The shutter speed does not have to be as fast as photographing something with a rapid wingbeat like a humming bird.
Another few weeks. Nisqually will have Lessors by the thousands. Last year, the rains came late and the ponds were mostly dry, I arive at Nisqually before dawn and catch the geese still in the ponds and on a good day, flocks arriving also. I have used a tripod but too restricting. I started using my 5DIV right at the end of the season last year and am excited to see what I can do this year. Keep the shutter speed high enough, F-stop 6.3 and let the ISO in auto with a max of 32000., These were taken in November 2018 with the Canon 7DII . R.J
