My Tuesday Eagle Adventure

My Tuesday Eagle Adventure.
 
So Tuesday 3 friends and I made the trek (4 hours each way) to Bluffton, GA to White Oak Pastures. White Oak Pastures is a large farm that is dedicated to organic and free range meat, while doing the best they can to be humane in the treatment of the animals. They do a good job of their mission. The idea of thousands of free range chickens is appealing to more than just humans though, Eagles have embraced the idea as well. It is hard to estimate how many Eagles are there, but there were times we saw more than 20 Eagles together. White Oak Pastures recently changed their policy to start charging photographers a photography fee, which I think is a wise choice. It will limit the number of people running around but it helps them, a private business, make some money for a service they offer. They have a website for you to find out more of the details of the policy and permit. I would strongly encourage you to support the business, not just for the Eagles, but for the food as well. They have very tasty burgers! Bring some boots to walk in the fields, we did about 10 miles of walking while there!
 
As for the image, I wanted to do more shooting with the Tamron 1.4x teleconverter with the new Tamron SP 150-600mm Di VC USD G2 lens. I knew this place would deliver the opportunities and it was a great experience to shoot more with the TC. I really do like the combination when I need that extra reach.
