Osprey at the nest with dinner

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Louis Champan, Apr 30, 2007.

  1. This past weekend Jim Thiel and myself spent a few hours watching and shooting our Osprey pair. They are still busy building the nest and trying to get things ready of the arrival of eggs.

    Here are a few shots of the many we took, showing them coming back to the nest with a fish.

    NIKON D2X    ---    500mm    f/5.0    1/500s    ISO 320

    NIKON D2X    ---    500mm    f/5.0    1/1000s    ISO 320

    NIKON D2X    ---    500mm    f/5.0    1/1250s    ISO 320

    I guess they didn't want anymore pictures taken of them.
    NIKON D2H    ---    300mm    f/5.0    1/1000s    ISO 200

    And away he flew.
    NIKON D2X    ---    500mm    f/7.1    1/1250s    ISO 250

  2. Excellent captures, Louie! Beautiful!
  3. Thanks Phil.

    Excellent images Louie
  5. Wow. The first one is great. Thrilling perspective.
  6. Great shots Louie. I think our shutters must have been going off at the same time as these look very familiar. It was a great morning for sure.
  7. I was there yesterday. . . appears the female is sitting on eggs.
  8. Thanks Gale. Have you been out shooting lately?

  9. Thanks for taking a look Daniel.

    Beautifully done Louie. The color nuance and clarity is remarkable, especially in the third photo.
