At the Dam

Unread postby jbtaylor » Tue Dec 12, 2017 8:42 pm

Conowingo Dam supports one of the largest bald eagle populations on the east coast. That population swells in December as migrating eagles find it a good place to rest and fatten up for the journey south. Fish that flow through the dam become disoriented and end up easy catches for the birds and opportunistic fishermen. The birds end up as easy catches for the photographers that flock there as well. The folks come from all over the region and the gear is impressive.

And now for the red meat, well, white meat actually.

Part 2
a77II and Tamron 150-600mm. I have to say that I still struggle with which focus setting I should use for the a77II in this circumstance. Not sure if my hit rate is good or needs improvement.
