  7. Hi Mike! I can understand the missing GIG card...you guy's ate them up! Your osprey shots are from the second nest we visited. I went back to the first nest on Sunday and all three are still there! I was shooting one of them crossing the bay hoping I'd get a shot of it fishing when behind me I could see flashing lights from the park ranger, I was approached and ask for ID and he wanted know why I was shooting the Navy ships across the bay :shock: I explained to him that I was shooting ospreys not ships! I waited a few minuets as he ran a check on my ID. All was OK but this was the first time I was ID as a photographer.

    Nice shots!

    That is wild but in todays tempermant toward security I guess it is not that far fetched. Glad it all worked out so any nice shots. Yes this whole card was from the 2nd next we visited. Thanks again, will have to do this again.
  9. I agree and told the park ranger so. He was nice and was telling me about some of his osprey stories and about some other nests.

    Anytime you want to venture out to the hook just let me know.

  10. Should have bought a Lottery ticket after you found these! Really nice and sharp images Mike!!
