Hi Scotty, all great tips. Unfortunately, it is a 5 hour drive and not much time to spend there once I get there. Oh, I would have NO problem wading through that ditch if I thought for one moment I could get closer, but had never been around eagles I didn't know what to do. I had visions of being there next supper, so I just stayed away. hehheheeh. Plus all those vulchers around there, I'm sure I would have made for one tasty meal for all of them...but my real question here is if I ever happen to run across this scenerio again, what are my options as far as a telephoto go? We drove around the refuge I know at least a dozen times and while there were plenty in the sky, not close enough for my 300. Then as we were about to leave the refuge is when I happened to look over in the field and saw all of them over there. I just don't want to take that long drive again with just my 300. I want to go looking for that TROHPY SHOT!!!! Oh and that hawk photo, he wasn't moving at all. I stayed by the car crouched down so I could get a "birds eye view", and stayed close to my opened door in case he got mad at me. I think I could have touched him and he wasn't about to leave his meal. And the funny thing was, the skunk really didn't smell, why was that? As you can see, it was pretty much gone...
