Longshot!

Challenge #2 in the Photography is like a box of chocolates... series. Hosted by Phil Reese.
Challenge has finished
This one's pretty ambiguous - was the shot taken with your longest lens? Was it one that was difficult or a longshot that you didn't think you could catch? Leave this one open to your imagination, just pay attention to the capture date rule.

Finally captured a distant bald eagle pair that my usual 400mm lens can't even come close to filling! I currently have a 800mm lens on loaner from Canon Professional Services and this made the LONG SHOT!
