My son, my son & Ospreys

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Lou Buscher, Jul 29, 2007.

  1. Off we went hunting the Cape Cod osprey. He knew the end of the lens to point as I gave him a set up of the 20D and the 1 to 400 on my new BushHawk and it made it so easy even a teacher could figure it out. (Yeah he's a math teacher) I set some setting on the camera and told him to go get um and off he did 475 photos later we finally (all worn out) quit. Here are a few from my son the wildlife photographer and I might add I have a lot more to go over from his group. I have to add the light was not the best so many came out dark but just about all of these are full frame photos processed to 9 X 14. I lugged the 500 on the monopod around managed a few nice ones also and I got to look at a new house there on the Cape as I am thinking about moving there.
    Way to go Bud and more to come. === Dad

    5 this one and the next the osprey went into a hover right above us and with the BushHawk he was able to get a burst of 3 off but the first one was NG. I could not tilt the monopod back far enough for any chance.
