    Hi you'll,

    I've been a tad busy so I haven't stopped in for a while. A short time ago I ran into an osprey in the Viera Wetlands having his lunch.
    19072777-L.



    19072778-L.

    he got a bit sloppy and started dropping pieces
    19072791-L.

    pretty soon he got to the end of the fish and his meal
    19072798-L.
     
  2. Nice shots Harry, looks like he was offering you some Sushi.

    Hi Harry,
    How can you be so busy when you're retired :lol: Had noticed you haven't been around here lately. Hope all fine there.

    You certainly are enjoying your D2H. Great osprey shots and colors too,

    Best to you,
    Gaye
     
  5. Good images Harry, nice to see you back.
     
  6. the 2nd image looks to me like he got the shivers, perhap a lttle twang in that bite.
    Excellent photos.

    Hey Gaye,

    I never expected to be this busy in retirement. I'm the moderator of the "wildlife & nature" forum over at dgrin so that's taking up a lot of my online time. Linda and I are both doing fine. Hope all is well at your end.

    I wondered where you have been lately Harry. I was starting to get a little worried. :? Glad you and Linda are OK.

    These are really nice shots. It's good to see you getting to spend some time with your new D2H. The colors on these shots is just great. :wink:

    Don't be such a stranger. :p

    Hey Gale,

    These guys are a bad influence they are why I'm shooting witha D2H and a 300mm/f4 now.

    The forum I moderate is here http://dgrin.com/forumdisplay.php?f=22
     
  14. Harry thnxs for telling me about this place! They are much more dog friendly than over at DGrin :lol:
     
  15. Nice shots. In the first one it almost looks like he's kissing the fish.

    BTW - it's a statistically proved fact that people are much more busy after retirement, at least the majority.

    regards
