Why is it that if the attachment is too large it erases the message? Moderaters should fix this flaw! So you get no description.

I like that!!

I "had" a pic of one about that size that I took in Yellowstone years ago (not bugling).

Their bugle is a neat sound. Good job.

BTW....it could be that you are having too much fun wandering around all the national parks:-)

Fabulous shot...congratulations. I know these type of shots are real trophys (IMO) and it makes me itch to get out there and try to capture one for myself! Best regards,

Hey Montana,

I used a Nikon Coolpix 8800 camera. I may have had a 630 mm TC on the thing but I am not sure.

The original is a little grainy since I shot it at either 200 or 400 ISO. This camera is too noisy, in my opinion, on any setting above 50 ISO. This makes it a poor choice for shooting wildlife. Landscapes don't care about slow shutter speeds *S*.

I know the feeling. My S2 is noisy, but thankfully it has IS. I don't use it outside of ISO 50. But thanks to the IS it can be very good for wildlife. I'm actually considering a Nikon d50 for landscapes and keeping the S2 for wildlife.
