    Went back and set up on the Osprey nest today, caught this sequence while I was there. A long 125 yards away through a small tunnel opening I found through all the tree leaves.
    Canon FDn 300/4.0, NEX-7...still had to crop up the final images.

    It was an absolutely beautiful day at the woods & lake today...bright, sunny, blue sky, 52*, etc...and as luck would have it the Ospreys put on exactly the kind of show I'd hoped for after I got set up...was only there an hour or so and it unfolded, and was over in about a minute, LOL.
