    Yowza Harris! These are great.

    I'm really torn between the second and the last. You really make that combo sing. Excellent in all aspects.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I have to agree with Patrick on these Harris. I love the lighting, and they are sharp as a tack. Absolutely awesome!! :smile:

    My only question is, where did you hide these guys when I was down there?? :rolleyes:

    Hey Harris,

    What a difference a little bit of light makes. Outstanding shots.

    Nice shots Harris. I think I like the last one best. Something about he upswept wings makes it look more actiony (if that's not a word, it is now :wink: ).
     
  7. Harris, I think we should call you the Osprey King...these are awesome, but that last one is perfection!
     
  8. Harris these are terrific as your osprey pictures always are. The light is so nice.

    Glad to see you're still finding some time to get out there and shoot. For a minute there, I was starting to get a little worried about you :wink: These shots still prove you still got it Harris. Very nice! Where'd you shoot them, over at Bear Point?
     
  10. Thanks Patrick, the lighting was just right, very low just before dusk.
     
  11. Seems Hutchinson Island has livened up a bit. There were 5 osprey on trees as we drove. Two more in Bear Point, though I missed them as they were far from me. Things are picking up. :biggrin:
     
  12. It's been beautiful weather here. Hope it is clear by you. Thanks
     
  13. Thanks Ben, Chris, Janet and Jim! Getting the flight shots was not so easy due to power lines and stuff getting in the way. I'm pleased by the results, and hope to see more birds as the fall migration continues. I had not been out on the island for late afternoon sun like this, it sure does make it a nice shot.
     
  14. Steve, the weather down here has been overcast for a couple weeks. This was my first chance to go onto Hutchinson Island. These were taken on the stretch or A1A just before Bear Point Sanctuary.

    Harris,

    All the images are very beautiful.
     
  16. Thanks Gale! Wish we had that sun when we saw those eagles the other day :frown:

    Will come back on your day off so you can join us. :smile:
     
  17. Harris, you have done yourself proud with these fine images. Way to go.
     
  18. Thanks Gordon. It was nice to be able to get out and shoot some.
