    Default Eagles in Homer...

    A buddy of mine on a photography forum is going to Homer next month. He wants info on photographing eagles. Here is his post. I will forward him any replies.

    "We are planning to take photos of bald eagles at Homer, Alaska next month. Anybody has any most updated info, such as eagle counting, shooting condition, and the "Eagle Lady"? I requested info from local tourism office but got no reply. Thanks in advance!"

    Don't piss of the eagle lady!! I believe she'd cut ya. Jean Keene is her name and she doesn't really like people hanging out but if you have a long lens and don't get close and molest the birds she's cool with photography. Just hide behind some pilings and click away.

    I believe her name is Jean. She has been feeding the eagles in Homer for years. The city is trying to shut her down and she is getting up there in years so chances for photography are dwindling. You can really get some great shots down there. We are heading down in 2 weeks. We went last year so I could try out my then new 100-400L free-hand. Worked out pretty well!!

    You throw extention tubes on that bad boy for the eagles down there?

    For homer I'd also reccomend a 12-24
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    No extension or TC's on the shots that are on my website. May try a 1.4 TC when we head down there on the 15th.
