First of all I hope all the moms had a great mothers day. I know we did. Here are a few shots from the osprey nest. The goslings are now growing very fast and eating like mad. They are sure fun to watch. The GBH flew right to me, landed, looked up at me and took off.

Just fantastic the color and sharpness are dead on perfect
Thanks much Mike. The camera seems to be working well after I got the new chip in it.

Those little honkers are great, as are the M&D, the Merganzer and the Osp.
Thanks Nick. It is always nice to get some variety and action. I was lucky on this day.

That is as nice a series as I've seen Jim

Well done
Thanks so much.
Cute cute alert:>))))
The are adorable.
All really nice shots
Thanks Gale. It is sure fun watching these goslings. They sure grow up fast.

These are all just too good! The babies are very very cute too!
Thanks much.

Nice series of pics, Jim. Have your osprey had chicks yet?
No, not yet. I think we will see chicks in the next week or so. Ours seem to be far behind yours. It is sure fun to watch them grow up and learn to fly.

Good shots Jim.
Thanks Ron. I hope all is well with you. Have not seen you for a long while.

Very very nice :667: :866: :910: :890: .

Excellent James! Love the osprey shots!

Hey, Jim,

I love the GBH shot with its wingtip nearly in the water. Beautiful perspective and the water provides an excellent backdrop. Of course, the goslings and their parents are just great to look at and the images of the goslings alone are terrific. How close were you able to get for those shots?

Your shots of the ospreys continue to knock my socks off. What great work and what a lovely chance to capture a merganser.

Very nice!

God bless.
Doug
