Scary Sharp

Scary Sharp

As I’ve said on several occasions, I am NOT a wildlife photographer, but IF I see ‘wildlife’, sure, I’ll probably get off a shot or two, but on this day, a day of heavy overcast and occasional rain showers, I spotted a lone eagle who seemed content to just sit on his branch, and wait out the inclement weather which in turn allowed me to ‘sneak’ closer, so much so, that I was able to get this wet, ruffle headed portrait, of one of America’s proud symbols, thanks in LARGE measure to my Nikkor 200-500mm, with its TC1.7 and in my crop sensor D500 body.
This portrait was taken at almost 1100mm, (500mm on the lens, plus 1.7 takes me to 850 plus 1.5 crop factor takes me all the way to 1275mm focal length lens! And when shot between F/11-F/14, the resulting images really are ‘scary’ sharp!
You keep shooting!
