Dollar the Bald Eagle

The Raptor Foundation – First Visit

As per my previous post I am going to be re-blogging some of my posts from a site that unfortunately no longer exists in an effort to get working on my blog again.

This was my first ever blog, from my first day out with my Fujifilm HS20EXR. As this was my first trip out with the camera the photos were not necessarily all ones I would be proud of now, but in the interests of staying true to my original blog have left all the photos as they were and most of the text as it was with the possible exception of some minor typo corrections.

As a first post I did not actually add much text to this blog, simply a few photos I was please with at the time. There will be further blogs from The Raptor Foundation with what you will hopefully find a continual improvement in the standard of photography. 

The Raptor Foundation is a superb rescue centre for birds of prey and provided a great day out for me and my family. Forgive the ignorance but I cannot remember what all the birds were.

This is also the first time I got to use my HS20EXR at the start of 2012 – I did wimp out and use Auto a lot of the time so got a lot to learn but hopefully you’ll enjoy the photos anyway.

I hope you have enjoyed these early days photos, these were unedited with the exception of the last 6 which were cropped.
