Fantastic shots, you must have been hidden in the nest next door. Great job.

Thank you all for all the kind comments. They are very much appreciated

Hi Steve,

The Osprey's in Florida apparently are quite used to humans being in close proximity to their nests. This particular nest is atop a short telephone pole barely 15ft above the ground and adjacent to a path leading to a beach. Visitors to the beach almost always stop at the nest site and look to see what is happening. This particular pair of Osprey and the chick just ignored all the humans, including the many photographers that came by. They were quite a bit more concerned with Vultures and other predators that came very close to the nest.
