Conowingo Bald Eagles

27 December 2014:

Today Tony and I drove to the Conowingo dam (located on the Susquehanna River near the town of Conowingo, MDso I could photograph bald eagles.  This is a place that many photographers visit.  It's about an hour, 40 minute drive from where we live.

I've been wanting a longer zoom lens for a while, and after today (I used my Nikon D7000 and Nikon 70-300mm lens), I DEFINITELY want a longer zoom. Most likely it will be the new Tamron 150-600mm lens.

These shots are not perfect (and they are cropped), as most of the birds were quite far away, but I was thrilled to be able to see these incredible birds and photograph them. There were probably a dozen or so of them, along with other types of birds.

Not quite in focus, I did capture this bald eagle plucking a fish out of the water.

I'm looking forward to going back once I get my new lens.

Late Summer Hummingbirds

I took these photos last week. I don't believe they're 'my' hummingbirds, but ones that are passing through as they head south for the winter.

I recently discovered that one of the hummingbirds in my yard has been feeding on my Thai basil plant. Not the clearest shots, as he was moving very quickly.

He also enjoyed a sunflower:

A few photos using my flash:

It's a beautiful day today so I took a bunch of sunflower photos. I have two areas, in which I have the flowers - in my garden and near the deck.
