So were you in the nest to shoot such a great close-up (grin)? Great capture and what a beautiful wing span! #505266

Thanks to all. I really like these birds. The nesting area will be closed between May 1 and September 1. So, I won't be able to approach the area after a few more days. #505303

Thanks, again, for everyone's supportive comments. This is male of a mated pair of Ospreys which I've been watching. They have been actively building a nest as big as a hot tub. I expect the eggs will be laid in early May. #505754

Hi Richard,

This is a great shot. I really like how the wings are spread out in this image. Best of luck.


P.S. At least after May you can shoot the easy targets in the back yard. :0) #506177
