High Power Lookout

From 2010 Blog
- This osprey has massive nest built atop a power line tower at the entrance of the Elizabeth River Natural Area and Canoe Launch in the Carolanne Farms neighborhood in Virginia Beach, Virginia. I was pretty far away using a 400mm lens with a 1.4x teleconvertor lens and tripod to capture the early evening image. As I moved a little closer, the osprey took off and made a big circle above me before returning to the nest. I guess he wanted a closer look at that crazy photographer. Canon 7D, 1/250 sec @ f/11.0, ISO 400, focal length 560mm.

Susan, I made an adjustment to the blog. Is the text readable now?
