I took this image in the first year of this hobby, 2007. I had my Canon XT and 50-500mm Sigma Bigma. I was positioned along the auto tour where post #13 is located now. The bird was flying at a low level from north to south and I shot it from my truck. The image ended up being selected by the NWRA (National Wildlife Refuge Association) in 2008 for inclusion in its image library. This was exciting for me as it was the first time an official organization recognized one of my photos. 1/500, f8, 313mm, ISO400, +2/3EV, Canon EOS XT, lens Sigma 50-500mm. Having the bird’s eye on me was frosting on the cake!
