Mother Osprey glides over her nest, guarding the clutch

Saw this beautiful Osprey female and her mate this morning as we viewed their nest. They chortled in distress, unfortunately, as we pulled over to the side of the road to photograph the nest and the birds. It made for interesting photos, however, like this one of the female soaring over the river.

Thank you very much! I use a Sigma 170-500mm but I do not remember the shutterspeed. I believe I had it on Sports mode when I took this. :)

If you get Adobe Bridge and pull up the original photograph or maybe even that one it will tell you everything even what time you took it

Wow, I actually had no idea that seahawks lived so far inland.

They live, really, by any large river. If there's fish, they're there!
