    A group of us, including my daughter Anna, age 9 , Gordon Large, and some others went over to Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge in Smyrna, Delaware earlier this year. Here is a series of an osprey coming in for a landing with a piece of fish:

    Hey Mark -

    Great sequence! I'm glad to see that at least one person is as far behind as I am in post-processing and posting. :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin: See you at Conowingo if not before.

    Gordon, Thanks! Sad to say I have some back from March to work on yet - barely started them but need to finish them They are from the woodie trip and I have a bunch of RR shots.

    Thanks Crystall - I have a real itch to get back up to the dam and the waterfall.

    Thanks Connie - just a minute, let me itch, itch, itch....oh, that is.. scratch, scratch, scratch....

    Thank you Gale.

    Thank you very much Andy - IMHO, I believe this is the best landing series that I have been able to capture - they were very cooperative and landed coming towards us.
     
  11. That's quite the nest holding contraption someone built. Nice series of pics.
     
  12. Very nice series, Mike. Thank you for sharing them.

    Thank you - the area is a reclaimed ocean tanker unloading station and there are remains of some 'commercial' things - I am not sure what this 'box' was used for - glad to see the osprey was able to 'reclaim' it.

    You welcome Mike.
