Thanks for comments Heather. There head will move from side to side when they are accessing for a threat. It can be quite cute to watch.

Yves Langlois

Like very much those shot with only the subject and the sky. You got it very sharp. Agree with Heather about the eye contact (with the zoom). Quite impress with the claws too.

Thanks Yves, I always enjoy visiting the nest. Mom is venturing out of the nest now that the chicks are getting bigger.

Lovely shot a a magnificent bird Debra. We have two on our lake and they are amazing.

I could watch them all day especially once the juveniles want to flee the nest, thanks Jenny.

Heather Mellon

Beautiful background sky and pov on this super shot Debra. You caught him in a great pose and he certainly has his eyes on you.. in close-up view those eyes are truly amazing. An excellent capture.

See above for reply, i guess I didn’t hit reply.

When visiting the Osprey nest the other day the male Osprey was sitting out on his pole with the female Osprey on another pole not too far away. She quickly flew back to the nest to protect the chicks. I am now able to report that one chick is big enough to poke his head up and just above the twigs at the top of the nest. Hopefully more have survived and will be visible shortly. The male Osprey stayed on the pole watching over the nest and ready to fly back if needed.
