I was wildlife viewing this weekend when I came across this bull. He was 110 yrds. away. I snapped off a photo with my camera at full zoom, and could barely see him. So I decided to hold my camera up to my binocs, and shoot the photo through the binocs. This is the end result. :D

I have seen this done with spotting scopes before. Both camera and scope were on tripods. They usually don't come out that clear but, it was usually more than 300 yards.
Nice bull and good pic, thanks for sharing. Its nice to see pics of them boys in a natural relaxed settings.

Very cool -- yes this is common with spotting scopes these days and is known as "digiscoping." You can get adapters that mount and center your camera on the scope, and results can be quite good, especially if you are using high-end optics. It's an interesting option given the cost of long-range camera lenses. I've never seen it done with binos before.
