Nice shot Tom! That clear blue sky makes the bird stand out.

I think I've said this before on this forum, but the only time I see an osprey is if I' out in a canoe or kayak. I feel very lucky if I see an osprey once in a year. And you have one living right nearby.

The nest is across the street from the vet clinic at the edge of town, two Eagles kept chasing the Osprey away this spring, but she kept on working at it and now she has two not so little ones in the nest. It is hard to get any kind of shot of the little ones because the sides of the nest are so tall, but I expect them to more active in a couple of weeks.

This is a not so great shot using a 1.4x TC with the 300 2.8, on the K20D, notice the feathers in the baby Osprey's mouth.
