Ospreys & Terns are in the air

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Louis Champan, Jun 30, 2008.

  1. For the past few weeks Bill, Jim and sometimes Morrie and myself have been meeting up for some early morning shooting of the diving terns and ospreys, and we're usually treated to some fast action by the eagles chasing them both if they are successful in getting a fish.
    Here's a few from over the past week or so.

    This shot was a long ways off and severely back lit, but I tried it anyway.

  4. Louie these are all really really good but my favorite is the last one with all the water spary. Very cool. I have not looked at my shots from yesterday. Hope one or two came out. To bad the clouds came in today.

  7. Nice Louie and the long one is IMO great for what you had. I get a lot of these kind of photos but never as good as this one came out. Thats a great INfo photo as what I call photos like this.

  16. Hi Charlie, thanks for your kind comments I appreciate it.

    Thanks for your comments.

    Thanks Lou. That last shot was with me D3 and the osprey was so back lit I wasn't sure of what I'd come out with. Something kind of appealing to me about that shot as well, maybe it's just because I got it.

    Thanks Guy, appreciate it.

    Thanks Warren, on that shot it flew right over me unbelievable.
