Yesterday I posted some of the photos I took at the end of May and through June. There were tons of photos, but I was missing the osprey. Well, here they are!
Anyway, as I said yesterday, I am planning three posts:
This is number two, osprey!
All of these photos are from Cape Cod, and most from the kayak taken in June. As always, I saw a lot of osprey. I had a few issues – the light was often as wrong as you can imagine. There was also the issue I talked about where I had been decreasing the aperture (increasing fstop) without realizing it, so I kept getting more and more motion blur. i would increase ISO to compensate, but that gives grainy photos. And other issues.
Still, I did get a few good photos, including photos of chicks being fed.
In the group of larger chicks being fed (two adults in the nest in images below), I had some where you could see pretty big hunks of fish, but they were all too blurry :( But I did get some good ones of the tiny chicks being fed.
There were three active nests I photographed (OK, five, but three where you can see the chicks). In one the chicks were almost as big as the adults, in another they were tiny and the third they were in between.
Anyway, here are the photos. As always, click on a photo to get more detail and to allow you to scroll through the bigger photos.
