Here’s a pic I haven’t seen anywhere else. If you follow this site, you’re aware of the work of local photographer Chris Johnson. He’s all over Instagram as vintage_rva. This week he rented an ultra-powerful zoom lens to see what kind of #RVA bald eagle action it would allow him to see.

How’s this for up close and personal?

About Andy Thompson

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
