Gorgeous takes on the Eagles. The more I see of the immatures I see how they have their own beauty with their markings. I envy all you guys that have that many of them inone area to take pics of.

Stunning! What camera and lens did you use on those shots? What is your thoghts on prime vs. zoom lens and picture quality from those lenses as far as wildlife shots go?

Again, thank you for the positive feedback everyone! Spy - I use a Canon EOS 20D camera body. I only have one zoom lens (Canon 17 - 85mm IS). I bought two prime lenses: Canon 400mm f/5.6L, Canon 300mm f/4L IS for bird photography. The only reason I decided to go with prime lenses instead of zoom is because of all the reports I read saying that you draw more dirt into your camera with a zoom lens. So, I can't comment on quality of bird photos using zoom versus prime other than the few occassions when I've used the 17-85mm for a bird that was in my face! I am very pleased with all three of the lenses I chose and don't regret my initial decision at all. All three lenses perform very well. However, I do feel ready to get a 500mm or 600mm lens now too!!!
