Llano Eagle’s Nest…

I haven’t had a chance to visit the nest this winter …I hear the nest has moved. I’m waiting till I can rent or get my hands on a ‘sharper’ lens. – These are my first attempts at it when the nest was closer to the road. The nest was located down Highway 29 toward Llano, Texas.

These are the best of alot of shots. I was still learning my new camera at the time as well. That’s why the images aren’t as sharp as I would like.

I wish this next shot would have been sharp – but in all honesty I had a wonderful time just watching this bird feed his family. I nicknamed the two babies “Orville and Wilbur” after the wright brothers.

So alas, my dream is saving up the money for my dream lens – The Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 VRII which runs around a good $2,000.00. I tried to rent one but they want a deposit equal to the amount of the lens so I’m still hunting sources so I can go back out and shoot (with a camera) this bird.

Peace, Love, and Eagle’s Wings,

    Bob, these are amazing! I love them!! When I got my tele-photo lens (not nearly what you want or have), my hubby found it at a pawn shop in Wyoming. Might be worth a look. 🙂 Keep posting these fantastic pictures!!

    I hope I got the right one, Laura! Thank you so much for the wonderful comments! I’m learning alot in the challenge as well – I’m just so swamped at times I cannot visit them all.

    Has anyone been to the new nest since the storm came through with the cold front with 50mph winds. I hope it is ok.

    I never thought of that- I think I’ll try and run up there. I know the nest is one fine piece of work it would be amazing if it stood up to all the cold and wind.
