Osprey Take-Off!

The female osprey takes flight from the nest.  Her powerful wings are at the top of there stoke, allowing her to gain altitude over the nest in just a few large wing flaps.  This photograph was taken with my Canon 7D camera and a 400 mm lens.  The shutter speed was set at 1/1600 second, the aperture was  set at F6.3 and the ISO was set at 250.

Osprey in Flight!

After a long summer of photographing a family of osprey on the banks of the Rideau River, I managed to capture this shot of an osprey soaring through the air with his wings spread wide and his piercing yellow eyes fixated on his target.  The osprey's beautiful colouring on his wings, head and body are highlighted in the bright blue sky.  This photography was taken with my Canon 7D camera and a 400 mm telephoto lens.  The aperture was set to f6.3 , ISO was set to 200 and the shutter speed was set at 1/1600 second to freeze the motion of the wings.
