    After seeing Backdoctor's great Osprey post, I was a bit hesitant to post these but what the heck :smile: Guess I still need to work at getting closer :rolleyes:

    Information Regarding Harris

    If you've been shooting with Harris, you've obviously noted the odor and the squadron on flies.


    Flew feeds cat food to his subjects...Harris lines his pockets with dead fish.

    You didn't know that trick?

    I beg your pardon, I don't feed the birds cat food!! I found a good cheap source for wild bird seed (1/3 the cost of cat food). :biggrin:

    Now I know what I'm doing wrong, pay (fish, cat food) why didn't I think of that :biggrin: :biggrin:

    So if I fill my pockets with fish one one side and cat food :tongue: on the other I should be able to bring home some Macro Osprey shots, NOT !!! :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

    Ben - No need to be hesitant about these shots. After all, you don't have any ospreys trained to sit on dead trees to pose for you. :biggrin: The second flight shot is gorgeous and you should feel proud.

  16. Nice job on the osprey pictures Ben. The osprey here in the PNW are getting hard to find as I am sure they are headed your way by now.
