Finally…a shot I have always wanted to try!!!! The American Bald Eagle is the symbol is the United States of America. I have always seen shots form other people and was hopeful one day to get mine! We were in Myrtle Beach for vacation and I had wanted to visit the famous Brookgreen Gardens. I will post am HDR shot and tell you more details soon. At Brookgreen there is a small zoo. I noticed they had Bald Eagles on the list! Nice! We arrived and they were in a netted enclosed area. Ugh! Tough to shoot through nets! Then I noticed a hole about 3-4 inches in diameter on the front face of the net (there on purpose)…maybe for people to take photos?? I stuck my big Nikon 70-200 though it (hoodless as it would not fit with the hood)…perfect! They had a male and female hanging out and I snapped away!! I love Fractalius and couldn’t wait to see how it would work with a bald eagle! A little photoshop fun…and a cool shot!! Fractalius is one awesome plug in for photoshop!! For some reason I always feel so sad for zoo animals…I know they are fed and kept safe, but these magnificent birds should be flying free.
