It is not so much the eagles I want to call to your attention, but rather the property where the eagles visit.
This is a large Dam on the Susquehanna River. It has been an environmental bone of contention when it was proposed, then built. I talked about this previously.
What you might not realize is the company that owns it went out of their way to rectify concerns and potential problems to appease the controversy. They built a nice area for fishermen and photographers from the area of the old railroad tracks shipping in materials and supplies to build the Dam. Families come to enjoy the day watching hundreds of eagles. The Dam also has nicely landscaped the property along with installing trails along the river to see wildflowers and nesting eagles in spring. They have done numerous improvements in cleaning the water they push through the turbines. I suppose if a Dam is needed like this, it is best the company does its best environmentally too.
This post is to work in conjunction with a rather dramatic eagle post on Nature and Wildlife Pics where I show fighting eagles using a Tamron G2 150-600mm lens with a 1.4x teleconverter. Why I directed readers from there to here is the images shown below. These images are right off the iPad and I only cropped them to see the quality at such a far distance. The River is over a quarter-mile across where the eagles are in the photos. The lens was handheld except for the eagles on the rocks where I used a tripod.
You cannot image how far away they were, yet the cropped images show reasonably well focused eagles, even those flying.
I plan to do a review on this lens when I get more practice. Three days is not enough to judge the lens for quality images.
