    At over 9000 feet elevation and at the end of 23 miles of dirt road, the stocked lake of trout is where I saw a female Bald Eagle, symbol of our nation for the first time in my life. Too bad I had a lousy lens of 200mm.  Plan to go up there again with my brand news 1000mm lens and get better pictures.

    Beautiful!  They are such majestic birds.  There is a raptor conservation near where I live, in the snake river canyon, but I have yet to spot an eagle there.  One day, perhaps.

      That is AWESOME Picture! How close were you?
      I used to have a Canon PowerShot, and Canon is a very good company!
      So the 200mm lens is very bad, it has color fringe:
      See below for comparison

      50mm fixed lens:

      200mm crappy lens with color fringe which is why so frustrated that I had an awesome shot but super lousy lens sad

      See the color fringe at 1:1

      500mm-1000mm lens just got yesterday (the day after the Bald Eagle)

      less color fringe at 1:1

      Of course I bought mine new from Ebay for $135 since I don't have money (bought it for my birthday) but check out these :Most expensive camera lens in the world:

      Canon 5200mm F/14 Mirror Lens 5200mm. This lens is perfect for shooting weddings 18-32 miles away! In fact, to even get your subject in focus they would have to be standing 394 feet away from the lens.
