This is the last known photo of [Bald Eagle] C43. I took it 10/18/2018. She was the oldest bald eagle ever known to be on Monroe Lake, but I didn’t know that when getting the shot, because reading the tag on her leg required a lot of luck and magnification. I followed her for an hour and then sat in my kayak with camera pointed almost straight up (she was at the top a tall tree) for forty minutes waiting for a takeoff shot. Not sure I could have done it with a much heavier camera. And I could have sat in a blind for twenty years without ever seeing her.
