My first eagle scouting excursion was a blast! I went with two fabulous friends (a couple of my besties) to the river then out to eat. I love hanging out with these girls!
We saw several eagles. M got so excited she couldn't stand it, literally! She took a tumble over some rocks with camera in hand. My first thought was "oh no, she's going lens first!" I know..I know...I'm a bad friend. But it gets worse. After I asked if she was okay (and saw the camera was at least still intact), she told me to "get the eagle"... so I did. I left my friend there in the mud to go take a picture! I know, right? Good thing P. was there to help M! 'Cause I'm not done.
M's "britches" were covered in mud! So I took a picture when she was walking ahead of us. and now I'm posting on my blog. Yes, today I was a horrible friend. This may be the final 365 post. She just might kill me! :) Anyway back to the eagles. I had to leave the land of optical zoom and head in to the rarely visited digital zoom territory. I don't like going there because the quality is not very good and my hands are too shaky to get a sharp image. I didn't have my tripod with me tonight to help stabilize the camera. Combine this with my lack of attention to the settings and you get what you see. These are the best of the eagle pictures. And they're not impressive. I don't mind though because I had a great time gabbin' and gigglin' with the girls (and JC the BM).
