Blue Bulls
Image by foghornleg90
These "big babies" are about 125 feet up a pine tree on the edge of the lake. There were at least 8, but the last storm took out 3 of the babies a couple weeks ago. All but one are flying. Mom & Dad (or so it seems) are flying in food every 10 to 30 minutes or so… and then it’s crazy, them arguing over who’s getting it. I’ve not yet been able to get a good photo of them feeding (the bull frogs, fish, and assorted other things they bring in). Definitely cool looking, at the top of the tree… and ever so noisy! I hope you enjoy these photos… they were from about 3 hours of waiting around and getting some bits and pieces.

Having the 350mm lens helps. I played with a variety of ISO & shutter speeds, and exposure controls. As well as both manual and auto focus (on the lens). This is one of the best ones I was able to get. There are actually 5 birds in the photo (one laying down to the right)… a sixth (mama I’d guess) is out of the shot to the right… after just feeding the one laying down.
