Yeah, the lens was every where, so I was lucky to get some shots off.I agree with your analysis of the IQ J but always nice to see (and capture) these majestic birds. Ours have all bogged off back to Africa for the winter. No travel restrictions for them
It's possible. I'll have several months to get some quality pics of it, hopefully.I like it. Maybe it is Oscar the a Osprey that comes here during the Spring & Summer.
I have a light weight, but solid aluminum 80" tripod that I can strap to the bottom of the camera bag I have coming in tomorrow. I agree on the lightweight chair. I'll have to see what REI has in stock in the way of ultra-light camp chairs made for backpackers.I can see why you would want to take a picture of that, it's a nice scene. I hear ya on the tripod. I need to get my butt up to Brandon and get my small tripod out of storage. It's small enough that I can carry it on my camera back-pack and take with me on my bike. Now I just need a small, packable chair to go with it. My knees scream from squatting too much.
