Description:

The eagles were out in force and the afternoon winds began to howl out of the west with the sun behind some light clouds. The eagles seemed to enjoy the high winds; they would just hang in the air and bank back and forth. So the big question is what lens would you reach for? For situations like this I will always grab a telephoto zoom like the 150-500mm OS HSM used here, for maximum flexibility and to help avoid clipped wings with the eagles banking.
