Peebles Island with the EOS 50D

This morning, I walked around Peebles Island with my Canon EOS 50D and EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens. There were the usual views and the usual bald eagles and deer.

There was also a skunk on the fire road. It's pretty impossible to photograph a back lit skunk and get anything but a silhouette. Like this:

Here is the chronological stroll out to the eagles' nest viewing site and back along the fire road. The M3 was a 24MP sensor the same size as the 50D which is only 15MP. So I can't crop nearly as closely now as I could before. This is evident with the Eagle photos which are 100% crops at 1200x800.  You can see there are two eaglets this year.
