Default Ospreys and Eagles

Hello every one, a few more from my recent trip to parts of the Potomac River recently
Beautiful Place, but they all are huh?

I had gotten too close to a nest that was on top of a duck blind, scared Mom, never saw her until it was too late, I don't think Dad was happy, sorry there Dad, Mom


On watch, a beautiful Osprey


This is noisy I agree but not too bad......? lol, hope not anyhow. A sequence of this Baldie taking off when we were getting close, 7:30 in the morning on a beautiful day, I changed wb a bit on each one. exif says infinity but it was 100 yds or so






Not my best work, next time will be better, hope you like them

Hey Bret, love the osprey, great shots and he is a beautiful specimen. The eagles are good shots of classic eagle poses, maybe a bit underexposed, or need a bit more contrast? But to me, any classic eagle shot is a good eagle shot and I enjoyed them a lot. You seem to have no trouble getting close to all these magnificent birds.

I think ospreys and eagles should not be allowed in the same thread They command so much adoration the photographer won't get enough credits . These are awesome shots Bret, The osprey perched on the small branch is stunning, and the take-off shots of the eagle is also equally stunning. Beautifully done!

Maybe you say they are not your best, but they are still enjoyable to look at and I for one am glad you shared. I love the shots of Baldie as he is about to take off. Very cool poses!

Great images, you say you took the shots of the baldie at 100yds, what size lens did you use.

Very nice work Brett with the distance, I have a hard time seeing 100 yards The Osprey shots are excellent, pa doesn't look too excited to see you.

Thanks everyone, very much appreciated.
As far as the distance, I guessed at 100 yds. but here is the original just cropped and minimal work. this was at 800mm.

Spot on, as always, Bret; the osprey shots are spectacular, in particular.

You're definitely getting the Osprey evil eye there Bret. You had some sweet light with the eagles and I love the second to last shot. Great shooting as always.

The detail you retain at that crop level is amazing.
