I went into Calgary yesterday for dinner at the home of a good friend. We had spoken on the phone about taking a walk in the local area with the camera before dinner, so I took along some gear in anticipation. As the snow is still very thick on the ground and landscapes were going to be few and far between in the city, I opted for the 100-400 mm telephoto. My friend had told me of an eagle or two in the area so I hedged my bets with the long lens. Sure enough, as we walked a trail by the river a beautiful juvenile Bald Eagle flew by, he was fast but I managed to get the settings sorted and burst off a few shots from distance. Given the circumstances I was pleased with the outcome and thought I'd share a single image and one where I've placed 4 shots onto one for ease of posting. There are signs of warming at last and I'm fast moving into 'spring' mode ready to chase those mountain landscapes again.
