Thanks ver much Jane, appreciate your comment.

Gorgeous shot Debra. I recognise the colorful nest. You must have spent a joyful moment with them shooting a lot. Love that one shot for the sharp focus and the pose of the male over the nest. The lady is quite cute too.

Debra Plett

Thanks very much Yves. Yes you can’t forget that nest with all the colourful twine mixed into the sticks. I am not sure where they are picking up the twine but it can be pretty dangerous for them as well. I was very excited to see the Osprey couple again, I have become very fond of them.

Heather Mellon

You're off to a great start with this shot too Debra. Beautiful tones, detail and composition here. Love the action you captured and looking forward to following their journey through your lens..

Hi Heather, thx very much for your comments. He was landing into the wind which also happened to be a nice angle for the sun streaming down on him. I am looking forward to checking in on them as well.

Clifford Dupuis

Great action shot Debra and the colours and details are outstanding. So nice to see them back

Thx Clifford, your feedback is always appreciated.

The male osprey is bringing back sticks to help strengthen the nest for this years family. The female osprey protects the nest while the male is off collecting sticks and bringing back fish.
