Eagle in warm morning light, 800 mm focal length
Feb 12, 2012

Our sea eagle is very suspicious and a bit clumsy on the ground, so it might he hard to come close a bird when sitting. This picture is taken from a hide with the A77 and my old 400 mm f:4.5 wide open with a 2x Minolta apo teleconverter attached, making the settings 800 mm at f:9. So dof is a bit limited. This lens is a bit soft wide open, and this softness is increased by the teleconverter. Still I found detail and contrast ok. Shutter speed was 1/125 sec at ISO 100.
