My first Osprey shot

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Kevin Scott, May 26, 2005.

  1. Decided to stop at a lakeside park today on the way home from work. Last night there was nothing there but tonight there was a bunch of activity. I got my first Osprey in the wild shots! I was really excited! They flew by continuously for a good hour, almost like they knew I needed the practice for next week @ Merritt Island. :wink:

    No doubt, it is a real thrill to get your first raptor. It's been over a year since I got my first raptor shot, and I can still remember the chills that I got when I looked at that LCD. 8)

    Very nice shot.

  6. Great capture Kevin, Yall have fun, wish I were joining you.
  7. Thanks, everyone!

    Greg ~ I'm beginning to find that these early morning/early evening shots are turning out particularly well. I'm still such a newbie with bird shooting though that I still go out midday. Forces me to learn metering the white birds in bright sun.

    Hey Gale ~ I'm getting antsy! :)  I'm probably going to be over there tomorrow. I wanna go to Viera but I also found a couple of interesting places on Sykes Creek and the Port. Trying to add to the collection of species you know. ;) 

    Dave ~ You still can come....not that many hours drive. It should be lots of fun.

    Frank ~ I'm looking forward to lots of chills. Gotta get some more CF cards. Drive safely and see you Monday am.

    Bryan ~ Thanks for always taking the time to comment. It's much appreciated! :)
