Today I went to go check on this Osprey nest that I have watch for the last 4 years. Each year I seen them rebuild this nest and watch them teach there young to hunt for fish. Its great to sit and watch these guys for hours.

I see you got some gear now Tom and the Nikon which adverts that model in so many back pages of photo mags..it lives up to its reputation.

Thanks for your concern about my health and think twice about getting a flu shot...I was the unlucky one...Still in a wheelchair for maybe a year while I build endurance.

Hello Tom,
You are lucky to have a nest of an Osprey in the neighbourhood. It must be exciting to observe them so close. Great photo of the bird in an impressive pose. Good sharpness, details and beautiful natural colours. Excellent composition.
