Hi there,
just got back from a fantastic, long weekend in the Cairngorms, photographing raptors that are native to the area. Pete Cairns lead the group, and all I can say is that the whole weekend exceeded my expectations by far.
This is Quince, the green eyed golden eagle, with whom we spent several hours in all at several locations, where wild eagles would have been 'at home'.
Good to be back to share my images of the event with you.

Camera:Canon 1DMK2N
Lens:500 F4 (Borrowed)
Recording media:JPEG (digital)
Title:Green Eyes

Nice shot love the contrast between the blurred foreground and the sharpness of the subject.

Is he still lending out that 500mm! He's on a commission from Canon for every one sold after the holiday Wink

They are good weekends and a lot of fun outside of the photography as well. I thought I'd seen a distinct improvement in your work and now I know where the influence is coming from Wink My red squirrels were taken from Pete's hide.

Was Andy still wearing a tie and showing up the standard of attire of the rest of the group?
