    Taken Wednesday with Capt. Mike, the Osprey Man. Jose and I were lucky enough to be invited for a fabulous day on the water near Casey Key, Florida with Capt Mike. A protocol question here, it's still an invitation, if it was me calling Mike and begging him to take us out in his boat, that's still an invite, right? Afterall, he did say "yes". Another protocol matter....does, "well, ...OK" equate to an enthusiastic invitation? Just kidding Mike. Mike issues a standing invitation and is a gracious person. A great time.

    Hi Gale. Thank you.
  4. Real nice set of osprey pics Ron. I love those juvies with the demon red eyes. They are so neat.

    I enjoy shooting with you (and the otehrs that visit). I get a kick out of taking you guys out to "my" osprey nests. It's quite a sight to see these birds coming in for a landing...from 15' away. There is always an open invite. I think I was a bit more enthusiastic than " well...O.K. " LOL. I think I said "Sure..that would be great" or was it " uhmm sorry wrong number" *-)

    You guys are always welcome back...even if you both wear fancy watches.

    Keep 'em coming.

    oh yeah... I was telling a little story about the Cpt. license. I don't have any license to operate any motor vehicle. LOL You are a brave man riding with me...very brave. LOL
  5. Very Well Done, Ron
  6. Well, when I was down there, we only ran into the bushes once! ;)  :Clown:

    Great shooting, Ron!!
  7. Good...you didn't catch the pelican I ran over or the crab trap markers. :wink: If you didn't yell...we just might have hit the pilon the nest was on. :biggrin:

    Vey cool Ron, Love the red eyes!!!
  14. Gorgeous! I hope I get to see an osprey some day! Keep em comin!
  15. Great shots Ron! You sure have that 200~400 dialed-in for handholding. All are extra crisp. Well done as usual my friend.
