A couple of images from yesterday. These raptors are establishing nests and everything that comes close to them, deserves being investigated. It's exciting having birds with a five foot wingspan, circle you and then make a pass with eyes riveted on your lens.

A day devoted to Ospreys is wonderful and leaves you with a smile that lasts. What a magnificent bird. Thanks for looking.

Great set, Joe. I love the look it gave you in the first, but the pose in the second wins for me - that is a terrific shot.

Wow! Those are great.
Seems the only time I can get a fairly close In Flight shot is when the Sun is beaming.
