Nick (Gluwater) and I headed out to the Osprey roost at 6am this morning, we had a great outing. Here's one that I thought I'd share. Taken with a D2H, 300mm VR and 1.4x TC (handheld).
Actually I have found they tolerate quite a bit in fact many are located in busy areas in stadium lightsThanks Gary...oh yeah, these Osprey are a wonderful find. I sure don't plan to make their lives miserable, my only desire is to capture their beauty. A thirty minute visit now and then shouldn't be too intrusive.:wink:
Thanks Dianne, yep, Nikon is offering VR on their newest 300mm lens. I haven't used the VR option much, since 99% of my shooting is at a shutter speed well about 1/400th second.WOW, Frank! Thanks for alerting me to this beauty! They've spotted ospreys at Hagerman too, but so far, I haven't seen one. That's a nice lens you have too - I didn't know there was a VR version of the 300! Keep em comin!
Nick is an outstanding birder and we enjoy shooting with one another. I am amazed that he was functioning as well as he was on only one hour sleep. Let us know when you are visiting Illinois so we can put out the welcome mat.Sweet shot Frank. Boy...you are brave. Getting up that early and then shooting with wild man Nick. *-) I may visit Illinoizzzz this summer. Might have to look you Illini photogs up. Have family there still. I wasn't able to convince them to move to Paradise.
