I’m not really equipped to photograph birds in flight – I need a much bigger lens. But, When twelve big bird started circling the trees not too far from the Spring Creek marina, I decided (being pushed by my wife) that I needed to try to photograph one.

This one came pretty much overhead, though even with my 200mm telephoto, I had to crop out about 80% of the photo to get a decent “close-up.” In case my wife is wondering why I keep getting higher resolution cameras, this photo will certainly answer that question. Now, Deb, how about letting me get a 400mm lens?

(We thought these might be eagles but after doing a little research, I’ve decided they are turkey vultures or buzzards. Oh well. . . )
