V2: Bald Eagle+Horned Owl
5 months ago

Had my V2 with 70-300CX yesterday and got these two (among many) shots. I was at the National Aviary in Pittsburgh, PA. USA. Not bad shots, but I was not happy for 2 reasons.

First...it was a bright but mostly cloudy day and the light was inconsistent ...and second, I really do not like shooting animals of any kind in an enclosed park. IMO they should not be there....they belong in the wild and taking their picture is like taking a family portrait.

I enjoy the hunt of the photo op!

and the thrill of photographing animals in their natural habitat.

But I was there and got these 2 pics anyway.
