Shot through a 10" Meade LX 200 scope. That made for a 4080mm lens. I had to shoot at ISO 3200 and 1/8000 of a second to try and avoid shake given the heat and wind.
:S

Nice find and tough conditions for the shot.
Just wondering how you got to 4080mm. Did you use some kind of barlow?

Hey Scott, How are you. The greenish stuff is Spanish Moss. It hangs from the trees out here.
