Last week went by in a blur, so this afternoon I spent some time at an Osprey nest by one of the local grade schools. The lighting wasn't great for most shots (backlighting), but I was so hungry for bird pix I took over 1,200 exposures. Let me tell you, it's a lot easier to shoot them off than to edit them. But it was fun!
Below is just one shot -- it may be a couple of days before I get to edit some more that are worth sharing. All were taken with my Canon 20D on a tripod with Canon's f5.6 400mm lens -- for some shots I added the 1.4x extender, but since it generally slows down the autofocusing I try to avoid it for flight shots.
