We have lots in Ontario just not in my part. If you go north above Lake Superior there are hundreds of them.

Hey James: difficult choice. I have both, and I have to admit that I use the 50-200mm most of the time. But I already had the 70-300 when I got the chance to get a used 50-200mm cheaply.

The 50-200 usually focuses more quickly and for the type of animal shooting that I do, it is usually a better choice. And I think that it is a sharper lens than the 70-300. But for close ups like flower shots, or where you have a distant static subject, the extra reach can be handy. The 70-300 is also lighter and easier to carry. All in all, I vote for a used 50-200, but if a 70-300 came along at a really thrifty price, then you should go for it.

Excellent pictures and an awesome sight. I have seen 6 at any one time but nothing like what you show. Would love to get up north and see them someday but it's about a 3-4 hr drive from where I live so would have to be a weekender. Not always easy to do with a large dog.

Excuses.... we used to travel with a 155 lb Malamute...

There's never any guarantee that they'd be here waiting for you. We decide not to go out today. Light snow and grey overcast. Hard to get their white heads to show.

Now that's a real dog! Would dwarf our Mal/Huskie mix She's great to travel with, it's finding a decent hotel that gives us trouble. Still, it's on the to do list.

Eric (the half a bee) learnt how to make himself small and sneaky. Funny how he knew.
Great dogs, the sled type. Have a sense of humour and know how to smile.

Nice pictures Ken.
Must be a stunning to have such a collection of eagles in your garden.
