A few more ospries

I have to say that I have a new found respect for Q and his bird photos. There's a lot to learn and remember when shooting birds in flight. I definitely need more practice. Tracking the birds and keeping them in the right position for spot metering and spot focusing isn't as easy as you would think it would be. That little square in the viewfinder gets really tiny when you're trying to keep it on the face of a bird, especially when they don't fly in a straight line.
These were all shot with the Nikon 1.4x teleconverter on the 600mm f4 lens. I cropped each photo about 10%.


  1. I'm green with envy looking at these shots Ron, I would be thrilled to capture the Osprey in flight like this, nice work !

  2. That top shot is amazing. Great detail in all of these! Time to start saving to afford a prime lens.

  3. I guess you should be happy with your investment by now. All you need now is a lot of free time to practice.

  4. These are nice. A whole new world of picture taking is now possible with the addition of the big bazooka lens. Good stuff!

  5. Amazing group of pictures! Keeping the little square on the bird in flight would be quite the challenge alright...
    Love that last picture with the bird looking back at you!
