I was blessed with finding an osprey nest out in the middle of nowhere that was actually constructed in a TREE and not on one of those silly platforms where he rest of the crew had to go to shoot these majestic birds! (I'm just bustin ya!). I've got lots of good shots from this pair, but these are a couple of my favorites. Every afternoon at 3:30 sharp, this beautiful male would sit on this limb facing the sun...eat a fish and then sun himself. Here are just two of a couple of the 100 or so I shot of him sunning....(I had to shoot hat many..I was in AWE of this creature and knew I'd never get another perfect opportunity like this in late afternoon sun with a blue sky behind him). Both shots were with the 200-400 with a TC14EII ISO 320 1/640 f8 matrix metered -0.7EV. I shot at 320 cause I knew noise wouldn't be a problem if I exposed correctly so that I could use f8 and get good depth of field on the entire bird.
