Nice captures, I think the first and last are the best of a fine series

Those chicks look like they're ready to take on the world. Nice captures and sharp pics.

These are stunning photos Dane. I have occasionally photographed ospreys from the ground or from the lake, but I have never produced photos even remotely approaching the quality of these. It appears that you somehow were in the tree-tops, at about the same level as the nest. It also looks like you were very close to the nest, or you have a crystal-clear long lens. How did you get up there, and what lens did you use?

Thank for the comments.
Most where shot from a boat, not at eye level just heavy crops with Sigma 500/4.5..

Great stuff. You are lucky indeed, I have a few nests around where I live but none would allow for such a vantage point (and some are too far from land to allow for any!).

Dane - great series. I might suggest excluding the nest from your sharpening though. The nest in a couple images appears over-sharpened and is slightly distracting. It's a minor thing but give it a go and see if you think it's an improvement.
