Three Bald EaglesNear San Juan Island National Historic Park (San Juan Island, Washington)Bald eagles migrate through the San Juan Islands during the summer before July 4th. I was fortunate enough to be able to spend an hour or more a day with them for over 120 days over the past few years. They don’t necessarily like me being there, but have learned to “tolerate” me. Photographing eagles is very challenging. Their size (over a 7 ft wingspan) and quickness makes them very difficult to photograph in the air. It took me many days to learn the correct shutter speed, and ISO combinations in order to capture them even partially in focus. I let the camera figure out the F-stop and hoped for the best depth of field possible.
