I made a trip to Gavin’s Point Dam with hopes of photographing eagles. I’ve seen many great eagle photos from there, but I think I may have picked the wrong day. It was a seasonably warm day and much of the snow in the area had already melted. I found a few eagles in the area, but they were spread out and all perched high in the trees. I talked to a local woman who was walking by, and asked if she knew of a good place to find eagles,and she said there were usually 4 or 5 eagles in this one tree near where I was. But they were not there on this day.
I was unable to get a unobstructed shot of the one eagle I was able to get closest to. Here is the photo I was able to get, shot with an Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II camera with a 300mm lens and 1.4X teleconverter (providing the reach of a 840mm lens on a full-frame equivalent.) I will try again next winter and hopefully get some shots while the eagles are more active.
