Osprey update

Lots of good things happened yesterday. One of the good things was taking a ride down the LaHave River to Lunenburg and stopping to photograph a couple of osprey nests. We visited them earlier in the summer, so it was nice to get an update. Here are a few photos.
can you see the second osprey in the centre of the nest?

adult and chick

love the wings!!

The last photo almost looks fake to me, but I didn't change the photo in any way other than slight sharpening.

Those shots are amazing ! Love that last one especially.

Two different osprey nests in our area are unoccupied this year. In each case only one osprey returned in spring as far as I could see ...

The first and 3rd photos are from the same nest...at Lunenburg by the golf course...shot from different angles.
The middle photo was taken just outside of Lunenburg (Mason's Beach?).
I was standing on the ground in both places, but using a zoom lens (200 - 500 zoom).

These are truly amazing photographs. Oh, how I wish I could be there in person!
