  1. A few shots from the Osprey nest Jim, Bill and I have been visiting for the pass month. The chicks are about to leave the nest but we missed the first flights.

  2. I'm running out of superlatives
  3. Quite a remarkable set Louie. Hard to pick a favorite - I like each one.
  4. Great shots all--but love #1, "OK kids, time to get the heck out of here!"
    All so very sharp and perfectly exposed.
  5. Stunning images Louie. What a treat it was to watch these nests.

    Great clarity and detail in these shots, love them all. :)
  10. You stole MY birds ;) These are grand, and so much fun to watch. Next year we have to find a place, maybe sit by the pond a while, so we can catch some fishing sequences as well.
  11. Great birds, good friends, great images - what a lot of fun.
  12. Very good series, I do like #4 - would be a wall hanger for me

    I'm curious which camera/lens combo did you use and how much of a crop are these? (Or, how close were you?)
  14. Mean a lot Randy, thanks.

    Thank you so much Dossy.

    I most appreciate your comments, thank you.

    Thanks Bill, for sure we'll have to spend a bit more time around the nest on our next trip.
  17. Awesome set!
