I often like to go out for a photo walk especially if I am in an area that might have some Bald Eagles present. I have a bit of a photo secret. My most favorite thing to photograph is Bald Eagles!!! I am not sure why, but capturing them is incredibly exciting and when ever I get a free chance, I love to get out there and photograph as many of them as I can find.
Walking through Lee Metcalf Wildlife Refuge, in Stevensville Montana, is absolutely beautiful. There are so many different species of birds and wildlife through out this massive Refuge. In the evenings there tends to be a lot more activity through in the park and you can just drive through and jump out with your camera when you see something. There is around 2 1/2 miles of Nature Trails as well, so its a great place to hike, walk or explore.
Here is the website for the Refuge: Lee Metcalf
These photographs where taken on a Nikon D600, 1.7X tele convertor and 300mm 2.8 lens. Also for the barn shots I used a Fujifilm XE-1 with Zeiss Touit 12mm 2.8 lens.
