In a van down by the river...

8 posts in this topic

Well not really in a van, but I was down by the river. Walking the shoreline of the Sippi at the Coon Rapids Dam searching for crappies I ended up finding some ducks and a hawk (ID please).

All were shot with the DReb XT and 70-200 F4L at ISO 200. Most at -1/3 EC.

I can't see a hawk, there's a big eagle in the way! Just Kidding! Great shots. I hope the fishing was as good.

Really, I guess I didn't look too close at it. I was carrying the fishin rod and camera bag in one hand and just looked up and shot these one handed. Gues it was an eagle then. Maybe once it has full plumage, it might let me get this close again. I bought a park pass today so I will be back there many times this summer.
