From two years ago, seems like a long time. back then, I posted "I want to get into public speaking"
Following a whirlwind summer speaking on cruise ships, I'll be a keynote speaker in Las Vegas soon. I can't say much, but it's pretty big time for me...:-)My motivation to write has come from just this kind of thing.
Observing Eagles (and nature)... freezing the action (and learning) is such a bright spot in my life.
Image #1 was shot with 300 MM lens on full choke. I had anticipated this eagle pulling this maneuver based on wind direction, his desired perch, near me at over 100 meters away from him. Was across the wind, he would have to adjust the whole way in.
At this air speed, Eagles always look where they are going, his current position will be gone the blink of an eye. (Maybe a good metaphor for life) Ready to roll over into a hard banked turn, eyes fixed on a 1" steel pipe rail on my ship, so far away, a human would barely be able see what he is shooting for. This is the creature that could read newsprint at 100 meters.
The set up, looking at the goal is how we are taught to ride motorcycles. (I know I am still transitioning off the bike..:-))
Image #2, full air brakes, feather reversed to increase low speed flight. Perfect 10 point landing. Still eyes on the spot, all the way in, his body pitched and swung in the gusts, but the eyes never wavered. After hitting his rail spot, he swings one talon over another to rotate 180 degrees and get a good look at me. I got the distinct feeling he knew he had impressed me, but no big deal, "I do this kinda stuff all the time dude" I am slack jawed! Just shaking my head and laughing! "Live amazed"
