    Photographing Bald Eagles With Spring Chick

    This evening was a fantastic evening to get outside and photograph male and female bald eagles. Oh, and don't forget their baby chick that's still a ball of feathers and confined to the nearly 6' nest. This was the first evening that I've seen the chick poke it's head out of the nest. While I was walking up to where the parents were, the baby chick was initially standing on the outter rim of the nest in full view. But as soon as I started getting closer to their nest, the baby chick jumped down and almost out of sight. I didn't get too close to the nest because I didn't want to disterb the parents that were watching my every step. 

    As I began to setup my tripod and camera I quickly noticed what I forgot... misquitoe repellant! Prior to today, I haven't needed it, but as the temperature hit 85 today and with the Cache La Poudre River full to the brim, I realized my mistake. The misquitoes weren't terrible, but it does make it hard to photograph bald eagles when you are batting a random misquitoe or five :)

    I stood there for close to an hour and a half photographing the bald eagles flying around me until the light dimmed below action wildlife photography

    During this outing, I was testing out Canon's 100-400mm IS L Lens. I'm currently renting the canon lens from Borrowed Lenses. I'll post my thoughts on the lens in the coming days as I continue to use it.
