I was watching this Osprey circling and diving for fish just off the beach at Sandbridge, Virginia today. She has just caught a fish and is flying off with it in her talons. The shot is not tack sharp focused as I would have liked but she was moving fast and I was happy enough with it to feature it as today's post. Canon 40D, 1/500 sec at f/13.0, ISO 200, 254mm.
This female Canada Goose was sitting on her nest just off the bank of Kemps Landing in Virginia Beach. I didn't see her at first until I got too close and she hissed at me. She never took her eyes off me. Canon 40D, 1/200 sec at f/9.0, ISO 400, Canon 100-400 zoom with 1.4x extender yielding a 560mm telephoto shot supported by a monopod.
