We try to do things a little differently from everybody else. For this reason, we offer six boat trips to photograph the magnificent Stellers & White Tailed Sea Eagles. This gives our guests plenty of opportunities to try for silhouettes, birds in flight, fishing & portraits on ice.
Look at the size of those talons!
These fantastic raptors can come so close to the boat that a mid-length telephoto lens works best for flexibility. In fact, you run the risk of being over-lensed even with a 100-400mm lens!
Quick tip: It's best to use a lens that you can handhold on the boat to compensate for motion at sea. While you can use a tripod, o tend to be more of a hindrance than a benefit – principally if the eagle flies over your head!
We started showcasing Peter's images with a red fox, so it seemed fitting to end a final fox image. Many thanks to Peter & his lovely wife An for being such great company & for sharing their pictures with us.
Photograph the Winter Wildlife of Japan for yourself
To photograph the charismatic winter wildlife of Japan for yourself, join David Miles & Ian Roberts, members of the NaturesLens guiding team, in Japan during February 2019 for a trip lasting 13 nights. This photography holiday will offer you the opportunity to capture images of the red-crowned crane, snow monkey, Steller's sea eagle, white-tailed sea eagle, whooper swan, plus more. The NaturesLens Winter Wildlife of Japan Photography Holiday is offered on half board, non-shared room basis, & costs £5249 per participant, but there are several early-bird places available priced at £4999.
Additionally, if you are a pair of travelling companions or a photography couple & do not mind sharing a twin-bed room, then you can book a pair of places for £4999 each – £9998 for both of you!
With both of these offers, you need to do nothing other than book. We will automatically apply the discount. You can hold a place with a deposit of £1000 – or the twin-share special offer with a deposit of £2000.
