Hey Charlie, see, I would have liked your duck picture, that's just me....I may indeed just rent that 300 before I even go back to see the eagles. That way I won't lose it here at home hopefully. I'll take a few with it and a few with mine then I'll decide. But it's still being in the right place at the right time and working that camera to the best of your ability...see ya....oh and thanks for the link on black bears. I live about an hour from cooks forest....may be my next adventure!!!!
