Great set, Ron. The nest shots are very unique. The POV makes a big difference and the techs are very good

Great collection Ron, particularly like 3 and 5 but can't complain about any of the bird shots.

You sure had a great outing with the Osprey Ron, excellent shooting buddy! A very good set of them with some neat in air and at nest activity.

Brew-Thru............a self flying banner? If not you must have hacked off a whole airplane

The Crow..................mighty fine image Ron............classy and a nice capture of color and character sir!

Lovely set Ron. I think the 3rd is may favourite.

Ron,
excellent series, sequence with wonderful sharpness and detail
I think the third is my favorite as well, but I would be thrilled with any of these
And that crow is looking pretty good too!
Scott


Thanx Scott. 3 seems to be the winner here, but I also like the crow.

My gosh that looked like quite the outing, Ron. Great shots and angles of approach. You captured the black and dark purples in that crow to a "T"! Well done. I would imagine you took K's worth of pictures of the osprey. I would have for sure. I sure did enjoy this.
Al


Thanx Al. I was particularly interested in catching the food exchange, and took a ton of shot trying to get something decent.

What a set Ron! Love the shots into the Osprey nest, a refreshing change from the neck craning view we are usually afforded The crow is magnificent, you are now a member of the Crow Club that Martin and I started. What does that mean? Well, absolutely nothing Except it is an exclusive club Loving the set Ron

Tim


Henny Youngman once said he didn't want to be a member of any club that would have him as a member...Hmmmmm? I'll take it anyway. I'm glad you liked the shots, and appreciate your kind words.

Great job on the osprey shots, but that crow portrait is the winner here for me - terrific job on capturing the plumage detail, colour and shading!

Great set Ron. You really homed in on them. I spent a week in Avon a month ago and was only blessed with some white ibis and pelicans in overcast skies.

Superb shots, Ron. Quite the location you've got.

FYI - the male osprey often eat the head first before bringing fish back to the nest. The head contains the good stuff - eyes and brains. Sounds gross but these are highly nutritious bits.

One more thing. It is usually the male that brings back the bacon. You can identify the male in Ron's great shots as he typically has much less of a 'necklace' - or specks on the chest. If you look at Ron's third shot, you can see what I am referring to. The female is on the nest and the male in the air.

Kinda of cool way to identify each.
