Below is the field my husband flies his radio control planes in. He left at 7:30 this morning with me following him. He has told me tales every day for 2 weeks of the Male Osprey that brings a fish to the Female and she feeds the babies. Today was my 3rd try for that photo.
I drove in and walked out behind a building to look up at the nest, and as I turned the corner and it came in view, the male dropped in the nest with the fish and handed it off to the female. NO! I screamed, I am not close enough. NO! as he flew away.
As i snapped away the mother kept starting down at me, the babies were screaming FEED ME! FEED ME! the daddy sat 100 yards away SCREEEEEEEE! SCRRRRRRRRRRRRE
The mothers tail feathers went up and down, up and down, i could not see what she was doing, but I know she was feeding bits of the fish to those loud, loud babies. I watched her for 10 minutes and got nothing but butt shots.
I turned my camera to the Male, See the white arrow, that is where he was sitting and calling to her, I took the above shot without my telephoto extended. I thought he is to far away but I will try it.
Even though I walked to the bottom of the pole, these two are the best I could do. He sat up there watching me.If you enlarge you can see him looking down at me. those poles are really high. I wish you could have heard it. The sounds alone were worth the visit.
YIKES...........it's plus size T-shirts and I really NEED a couple. I take 8 (yes 8) to the dressing room and 15 minutes later, walk out the door with 2 shirts for 20 bucks. YIPEE my husband will be soooo proud of me. Photos AND saving money in the same trip.
the keyboard is fine, the problem is the computer. OH NO! (that's another story)
