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.

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

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

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.

Hi Harry,

Thanks and the egret did have a deep affection for that fish. :)

I must be in that majority because I sure am keeping busy.
