OspreyLand - Landing Wings

My favorite shots of Osprey are when they are landing. I like the way their wings look when they are using them to slow down. I was watching loudmouths nest from about 1/2 mile away and she was in and out of her nest about every 15 minutes. I did see her babies head a couple of times so the baby seems OK. One time she came back and had a stick with her. All I could figure is she must be re-doing the nest for the baby (Working on the nursery). I decided I would get as close as I needed with my 500mm lens and back into a tree and see if I could get some landing wing shots.

She didn't bring back a stick this time.

She will miss the limb and then be at her nest.

This time she brought back a stick.

On my way back to the camera wagon I found Mr. Loudmouth sitting in a snag finishing up a fish head for brunch.
