Dinner Time

A male osprey stops for a fish dinner on the top of a hydro pole.  This photograph was taken with my Canon 7D Mark II camera, a Sigma 150-600 mm lens and a 1.4x teleconverter set at 840 mm.  The shutter speed was set to 1/1000 second, the aperture was set to f9 and the ISO was set to 2500.

Mommy, Daddy and Baby Osprey

This week I found a new addition to the osprey nest I have been watching.  The male osprey returned to the nest with diner, the female was very vocal and all of a sudden a little head peeks over the edge of the nest.  This photograph was taken with my Canon 7D Mark II camera and a Sigma 150-600 mm lens set to 600 mm.  The shutter speed was set to 1/1600 second, the aperture was set to f8.0 and the ISO was set to 1250

Please feel free to share.  Feedback and comments are always welcome. :)
