Great images Ron! Nice to see someone not afraid to climb up and get in the nest with the Ospreys!


Thanx Scott. No climbing necessary - I used stilts.

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!
Karl


Thanx Karl. The banner was full frame, so no plane. The more I look at the Crow, the more I like it.

I really like the crow. Well done!


Thanx. I like it too.

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!

Paul


Thanx Paul. The Crow shot is probably the best technically, and my second choice.

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.


Thanx Herb. Let me know if you go back, I might have some location suggestions - if you need any.

Very Nice Ron!

I just installed a new MSI 560ti Hawk GPU/Video card and man these look good on my monitor!

I wish I could get that kind of view at my nest!

Ron, awesome shots. Great vantage point on the ospreys.


Thanx Roy.

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.

Henrik


Thanx a bunch Henrik. I have seen this behavior before and wondered why - makes sense. Also, the female ate the gills while feeding flesh to the chicks. And thanx for the ID help too.

Great detail on the Crow. The Osprey shots are fantastic, shooting from the deck really makes for some great eye level shots.

Ron.. I love these shots, I love Duck a lot and the Crow blew me away. So cool they let you go up there and shoot. Great, great shots.. BTW. my theory about the headless fish was always that they did that so it would stop flapping and possibly injure the chicks. They don't stop for a long time. lol So that kinda blows that. I've actually seen one flop out of the nest and get away. Must have been inexperienced parents to bring a naughty fish to the kids like that. ha ha Wonderful series!!
