Grate picture of the Osprey and his nest. It shows a lot of action and the timing is perfect. A masterwork congratulation, TFS

Nice to know that your husband is teaming up with you!
Good action shot and the subjects are place correctly in the picture. The bird flying towards the nest is taking 'center stage' in this composition. TFS.

Simply a superb shot of the Osprey family. Focus is spot on for both birds. I'm impressed with the performance of the lens and 2x extender giving you an effective 840mm lens.
It appears that the nest is built on a local peak.

The Osprey, dinner, nest and DOF are outstanding. Plus it look like dad is looking right toward the camera. I hope the little ones appreciated dinner. Well done.

Great photo showing the nest, one in and one inflight approaching..I do like the composition against the granite face for BG. Excellent DOF, colors, contrast, light, and sharp details.
Very well done.
Have a Great Weekend!
An outstanding capture showing both the adult in the nest with young and the other adult bringing food...I'm surprised there is public access to the nesting area...I was lucky enough to have an Osprey roosting this past Spring on an antenna where I live...He was too wary of humans for me to ever get a shot...Very well done...

Very nice. I am doing a full page of ospreys tomorrow...This looks like you have reached a high aerie and in good fashion. Those puppies can come at you with full talon attack. Great shot and capture Eve;
I am finally back and semi-recovered from my jet lag, so I hope to catch up on some of the beautiful shots I have missed in the past month. : 0
What a fantastic POV of this osprey nest, with both ospreys in view.
That must have been a thrill, with one sitting on the eggs, and the other bringing back food. Couldn't have asked for a better presentation.
The one flying in is nicely delineated against the neutral rock BG.
Really good details for such a long shot.
I also really enjoyed your two workshop shots showing the nest in its context. What beautiful country!
TFS. : )
And tell Jerry he is doing a great job as a spotter. Can I hire him?
It is so nice to see photos from an area that I know. I can now beter feel where you were standing and what you saw outside the viewfinder. I am sure that you are going to post some wonderful landscape photos from this great area.
I really love the moment you capture here. t shows the dedication to photography, I know this wasn't taken within the first few seconds after you arrived. It also shows a wonderful family moment where the chick receives a great trout dinner.
I love the way you isollated the nest from the BG. Knowing the harsh light and the brightness of the rocks you managed the exposure superbly.

That is a huge nest and you have captured the whole family in style. Great timming to catch the bird flying in with its wings spread open. Superb lighting and focus. Excellent POV to portray this scene and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Really a great moment you've caught here, timed to perfection. We have Ospreys in the far north of the UK, but i've never managed to see one yet...to me, this looks like it's a wildlife documentary thats been paused just at the right moment!
very well done.

From the workshops you posted I can see that they have a great nesting spot. It's a lovely and a very natural action shot from the daily-life of this ospreys. Nice work! TFS

at f/8 this photo really does look great!What this photo conveys is just how very large the osprey nest is relative to the birds-well done.The bird on the right hand side gripping that fish is magic and it gives such a wonderful dynamic to this composition.Given how far you were away from the action this photo is great and I thank you for showing it to us.

Firstly congrats on a fine lens purchase! Does this mean we'll be seeing more wildlife shots now from you? Nice timing on this osprey bringing home the bacon.

This is a very interesting post Evelynn! I like those birds a lot and I had the chance to see one only once in my life. You were lucky to have had this opportunity to see them in action like this. This is a very dynamic capture with great action, beautiful details and exposure. I also appreciated those pictures in WS. Well done!
