    Went out to a place called Bathtub Reef this morning, as recommended by the girl at the Starbuck's drivethough window. She was right, there are both Ospreys and wading birds there during low tide. Not the best shots I ever took, but will admit these are all 100% crops. Next time, I'll get a lot closer! I never left the wood deck. Got all wrapped up chatting with a real nice lady from Canada, and another photog shooting Canon . All shot w/D2Hs/500/Tc1.4, except for 1st, which was done handheld out the car window w/D70/70-200VR/TC1.7 as I was leaving.

    I really like the first shot Steve...
    The rest are good too, but that first one is almost as good as your shots of Jesse..
