Nesting Instinct II

Osoyoos, BC

This was actually taken before Nesting Instinct as the Osprey approached the perch and the wings are
more outstretched. The other shot is of that hover-like motion they do just as they begin to land on
the perch.

1/500sec, f/5.6, ISO 1600, Handheld, cropped, noise reduced and sharpened. full exif
