    Hi you'll,

    Some folks think I have it easy living so close to the Viera Wetlands but thats not really true. Awhile ago I came across this scene
    [​IMG]

    On the tree on the left there was an osprey and on The Tree was a crested caracara. They had me bouncing back and forth carrying my tripod and camera from tree to tree like a ball in a pinball game.

    first the osprey
    [​IMG]

    then the caracara
    [​IMG]

    back to the osprey
    [​IMG]

    caracara time
    [​IMG]

    one more osprey
    [​IMG]

    then to really overload me a second caracara arrived

    I'm too old and fat to be doing all this running around. :biggrin:
     
  2. Great shots and I love the story, 500mm with TC14EII ? Great combo

    Thanks Andreas, glad you enjoyed them. They were shot with the Nikon 500mm/f4 and the TC14EII which definitely is a great combo.

    If you were like the rest of us, you would have been happy with the one. I admit, I'm never happy with one humpback, but I don't control the boat, so there isn't much I can do about my situation. Just look at the bright side, you won't need that gym membership....
    Great shots, BTW.
     
  11. It's a rough life Harry, I dont know how you cope with it all. :cool:

    I understand. I would be jealous of me too. :biggrin:
     
  15. You go, Harry!!! I'm not jealous cuz I can get over there any time I want. :cool:  It's great to have days like those when such decisions must be made. Good luck with your continued exercise regimen! :redface:

    I prefer it when they take turns instead all coming in at once but what the heck. :biggrin: I'll take what they give me.

    Thanks
     
  17. Hey Harry, excellent shots of both birds. I am still amazed at the the claws on the Osprey and you have shown them well.

    Looks like you had a rough day :rolleyes:  :smile:
    And I bet you still complained because they just sat there and didn't do anything.
