Today I headed back to Lock and Dam 14 on the Mississippi River. Today was my local photo club’s Eagle Outing. I knew I was there mostly to guide and pay it forward. There was a total of 23 Photographers from our We Click Photo Club. The club even rented a pair of 15-600’s for the people to share. I believe a good time was had by most of them.
Snow was in the forecast, clouds and tougher lighting and warmer temps meant less eagle activity. However, I was pleasantly surprised that I took 681 photos and have 116 keepers. That is a pretty good “keeper” rate. Especially for only being the third day on the new combination in my hands.
All shots in this post are from the Canon 7D mkii + Canon 100-400 mkii
Study the eye in the eagle below, you can see her Nictitating eyelid

Thanks for stopping by, Life is good, and I am blessed!
Once again Kent I find these pictures wonderful. It looks like you have a very good handle on the 7D Mark II in a very short period of time. I must admit I’m scratching my head trying to figure out why a number of people, or some people, are having a difficult time with the focus system on this camera. Is it improper technique, the camera, or a combination of both? Thanks again for your efforts in posting these pic as I do enjoy viewing them.
