Today's trip to the Osprey nest (lots of pics)

Mar 12, 2006
Arlington, VA
I am fortunate to have an osprey nest at Belle Haven Marina about 20 minutes from my house. It is one of 5 nests south of Alexandria on the Potomac River. These shots were taken with the 300 f/4 + 1.7 TC handheld. I need more practice getting the exposure right out of the camera. These needed a fair amount of work with levels. I put in about +.7 ev but they needed more. It might be easier later in the afternoon when the sun is lower.

The nest is about 20 yards from the shore. I can't wait to go down with my long lens and tripod once there are chicks.
