Whooping Cranes

Last Saturday I left the house with camera in hand and drove to the Hagerman Wildlife Refuge in hopes to capture some shots of the nesting Bald Eagles. Much to mu surprise there were three Whooping Cranes that stopped by to rest.

They were a little too far away for my Tamron 100-400 but a cool site nonetheless.

White Rock Bald Eagles – 7

This will be the final post of this shoot at White Rock lake. I still can’t believe I even captured pictures of a nesting pair of Bald Eagles much less a mating nesting pair!

I filled up the buffer on my camera at least twice and took about a hundred pictures of these guys in the act.

White Rock Eagles – 6

I never thought I would ever see Bald Eagle in Texas. I also never thought I would get a picture of a nesting pair. I would go down to White Tock Lake every day if I thought I could get a photo of these guys, much less see them doing what they are about to do.

It gets better!

White Rock Eagles-3

This time I went back with a Tamron 150-600mm lens. I found the birds where I wasn’t expecting. After about thirty pictures, nature at its best happened through me lens. I’ll post more later in the week to show what I’m talking about.

Stay tuned!

White Rock Eagles

I wen back to the lake to see if the Eagle was there. I went back to the same area and lo and behold, there one was sitting on the same tree branch.

This time I was able to get a little closer without disturbing the bird.

I’ll try again but I’m going to rent a Tamron 150-600mm lens.
