Default more osprey from this evening

went back to the osprey nest again this evening, and spent about 2 hours sitting in my car waiting for something to happen. i've found that if i stay in the car, the osprey don't spook as easily, and since i was parked about 30 yards from the nest, i didn't feel the need to get out and try to get closer. would've buggered the angle anyway... shot with the 7D and 100-400 with polarizer, various settings, mostly at 400mm, mostly at f/8...

bringin' home the bac... er, fish!

final approach...

okay kids, i brought home some take-out...

i am mighty!

more fish? sheesh! don't you kids ever get full?


Out where the rivers like to run, I stand alone, and take back something worth remembering...

Nice catch! It looked like he caught a flounder with the fish head missing. This Osprey is a good provider. Not only he caught fishes to feed his family, he even remove the fish head so the family doesn't have to deal with it.

More great shots. Thanks, really enjoy them. We use our car as a blind all the time. We're lucky the refuge we go to as great road through out.
