What are you doing on my branch!
13-AUG-2006 BJ Ramsay

What are you doing on my branch!

Flag Ponds SP, Calvert MD

I went to Flag Ponds today in hopes of shooting some insects with my 80-400 for practice
more than anything. When I got there someone told me the ospreys were feeding just off the shore,
and she was RIGHT! I got several good shots of ospreys diving and catching fish, a 600mm lens
would have been nice but what I got was very nice!
I stopped by the inshore pond on the way back to the car and all the ospreys were eating their
catch there, which is where I got this shot!
On the way back home the sun was just setting so I quickly stopped at the Navy Rec Center on
Soloman's Island and this shot is right out of the camera!

Nikon D200 ,Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED VR AF
1/640s f/7.1 at 400.0mm iso200 full exif

Excellent shot. A great pose, and nice deteails. If you get a 600mm, I want to "borrow" it for
a few months.
