Fantastic shot. The osprey is doing some high steppin' to get away from the fantail. :p

Thanks Lame Duck. The fantail gave the osprey a work over, they really have some attitude!

These two shots are fantastic, Paul. You really captured them nicely.

Thanks Mike.
The eggs will be hatching at the Skimmer nest-site soon.
Hopefully snap some images.

Thank you Robert.
The eggs at their nest-site should be hatching any day now.
The hunting activity, Gull invasions and noise levels will be intense.
Happy trails.

I did not know they nest together in large numbers like this. Very interesting shot, Paul. You second shot shows exactly why they are called skimmers. Perfect shot.

Often mistaken, but never in doubt.

During courtship the Male will bring Her a fish.
If she excepts the bait they'll mate, hilarious behavior.

Interesting behavior. Kind of like accepting a wedding ring I suppose. :-) Terrific two shot series, Paul. It certainly demonstrates the courtship behavior very well.

Thank you very much, Robert! That is what the heavy/pricey long prime lenses are for :-P:lol:
