It was an unseasonably warm Christmas in 2015. There had been several eagle sightings in New Ipswich, NH, and I asked friends to give me a call if they see any. The call came on Christmas afternoon and I hurried over to Waterloom Pond with my camera.
I own an inexpensive 300mm telephoto lens. Foolishly I had forgotten to take my monopod which might have stabilized these shots more. Cheaper lens are a slower and I had to push the ISO setting to 1000 to get the exposure with fast shutter. I’m not very happy with the photos but seeing an eagle on Christmas Day was a wonderful Christmas gift.
