    Default Male Osprey landing with fish for nesting Female

    Early morning cloudy / bright overcast...up at 5:00, drove to the lake, hiked a mile through the woods to the nest site, and set up my extensive 'wildlife studio'.
    ( a couple cushions and a tripod )




    Best shot I got was just as he landed.
    ( unfortunately shutter speed was too slow to freeze his in-flight approach shots )
