The pictures of these two Ospreys on the nest was taken in the Everglades National Park, Florida. The picture of these Osprey was taken with the CANON EOS7D and the CANON 100-400mm lens and the CANON 580EXII flash.
I took this picture while on a boat in midday – not my favorite options to take pictures. I guess the subject is too compelling for me (and probably others.)
I took two different boat trips through the 10,000 islands of the western portion of the Everglades National Park. My main reaction was that if New Orleans had kept all of the original barrier islands the way they were, the force of the hurricanes would have been abated. Nature has her ways.
