    I got the film developed today!
    I'll show y'all the four pictures that I scanned.

    This first one shows you how far I was away from the birds!

    The nest had one baby eaglet in it. You can see it if you look closely.

    One of the Eagles flew up to a pirch and posed for me.

    I hope y'all like them!
    The distortion is from the telescope I was using... It's a HUGE telescope I needed one that big if I was going to get any pictures of these guys!

    It had a DOF of about an inch(a challenge to focus!)

    Tell me what y'all think!:D

    :cheer: Yay, you got your film back and it worked! You got the telescope lense to work all right! Congratulations! I'm impressed!:thumbup: It must be thrilling to get so near to such birds, even though in fact you had to stay pretty far away, as I can tell from your first pic.
    By the way: extra thanks for that one so we can appreciate more what you got through the telescope lense!

    Good posts Littleman . It's always such a challenge to take nature photo's, kudo's to you.

    I didn't know bald eagles nested so far south. When I worked up north I had to wear a hard hat as I passed by a certain bald eagles nest, cause he had a habit of dive bombing passerby's.

    Thank you very much LaFoto!
    It was really amazing being able to use the telescope with my camera. I let the people walking by look through it... and all they could say was "wow!" :mrgreen:
    Here is a picture of the telescope with me just so you have an idea as to how big this thing is... haha:)

    Well, This nest IS the farthest SouthWest than any other Bald Eagle nest there is. Also, yes... they do nest down here even though it is way far south.:D Lucky me!:mrgreen:
