Hi All, Finally had a break in the weather today and boy was it windy and chilly this morning around 38 degrees. Stopped by my osprey nest and its coming out well! Here the male is bringing the mattress part of the nest:smile:

These were shot with my D70, 300mm F/4 and 1.4TC

She's happy to see me

This shot would have been pretty good if that feather didn't block his right eye

Dang Anthony! I echo exactly what Frank said - sharp, well exposed, and processed well. You are singing with that 300f/4 so take a stage bow. :biggrin:

Don't worry aout it as if they need to thay can put a nest together in a week. I just got the word from my son they are in at Cape Cod so I guess I will be taking a trip in May. To visit my son and grandaughters of cause :wink:
