  1. Hi All, As some of you may know today I was lucky enough to photograph some Juvenal ospreys getting banded today. Here's a few shots. I'll have the good, bad and the ugly write up and many additional photos early next week.

    Thanks for looking, Anthony

    Equipment: D200, Nikkor 35mm f/2.0
    Weather: Cloudy

    Really nice
    Did they try to bite..
    Sure does not look like it i the photos. They look rather calm.

    Beautiful close ups
    What a great experience
  4. I guess these are close, 35mm wow. Could be close like a fisheye LOL..
  5. Super set Tony
  6. Great pics!

    I'm surprised the little guys didn't 'claw' you real good! :eek:. Even as juvies, this birds have really strong and sharp claws. Any pics of your hands afterwards? :tongue:

    Thanks for posting the pics
  7. Neat! Lets see more - hope you have some closeups of the head!!!

    Wow Anthony. I'm also amazed at how calm they look. I would have thought that they would be much more aggressive about trying to get free.

    Excellent set.
  9. Hi Gale, They were both rather calm but the parents were another story!

  10. Hi James, I was thinking about bring my 12-24mm but it was suggest by a few members to bring my 35mm.
  11. Thanks Gary, John, Andréas, Frank and Randy!
