So since it wasn’t raining today, I thought I’d go take some birds pics. Long story short- I spent the afternoon in the ER.

While I was shooting this Red-shouldered Hawk I was bitten by some ants. 10 minutes later I was swelling up and had hives. I went to ER, they took me right away. My eyes, ears and mouth was swollen.
Damn ants. Anyway, they took care of me and I’m OK now.

Taken with Canon 70D with 100-400mm L II IS lens @300mm, f6.3, 1/400 sec 200 ISO.

This is 1 of the 2 Adolescent Bald Eagles that we have in the area.  They are around 9 months old.  I’ve been photographing over that time period but this is the first time he/she came and sat outside my window.

He/she likes to sit there and squawk and make noise.  I don’t mind.  I just wish he would turn and face me (camera) so I can take a front view pic.
