Default I'm posting this here because this guy was trying to shoot eagle pics

Today at the lock and dam was very slow as far a eagle shooting goes. But there was a frightful scene. The guy had a fish launcher for the bait except he launched something else.....

All you Nikon people do the math on this......

I shoot Canon but that still makes me feel a bit ill.
Hope he's got some insurance...

I have a hunch he exceeded the capabilities of the weather sealing. That definitely counts as a bad day.

Your picture is worth 1000 words - all being 4 letters and I am sure the photographer was using all of them. No pun intended but this photo leaves me withthe proverbial sinking feeling. I really feel for him. Perhaps he was fortunate enough to have some type of accident insurance.
Cheers, Murray

I went to my camera bag, took out my Nikon and gave it a great big hug!

Maybe he will go Canon. Hahaha. Just had to say it. I feel bad for the guy. I just have my Canon a hug and cleaned it. Good Canon.

He did it deliberately...
Wanted to get new gear and had no good excuse so thinks of this.

Jokes aside - I felt terrible when my flash got drowned. I know what this guy must have been feeling at the time..

It is amazing he got it out of the water. It was completely submerged he left to get dragging hooks, was able to locate it with the hooks in a part of the river that had been dredged for barge traffic.

I can't believe you actually caught a picture of that scene. Looks like you took the picture just as it was falling into the water - is that correct?
