  1. Here are a few shots of an osprey family in a nest near me.

    The whole family:

    Dad went off hunting and then mom went for a little fly around the nest. These are four shots of her returning to the nest.

    Great shots of the Osprey! I love shooting these birds as they are not as skittish as most large raptors.

    What lens were these taken with?

    Amazing!!! Love the family shot!
     
  4. I was away for two weeks.

    I shot these with my Sigma 120-300 + 1.4TC.
     
  5. Great shots Nate but your last 4 shots are not the dad. What you shot was a juvenile possibly a female. You can tell is a juvenile by its orange eyes and whitish scaling on back feathers.
