A photo of an Osprey bringing nesting materials to the nest on an Osprey Platform along the Wildlife Drive at the Brigantine Division of the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in Oceanville NJ. This was from a few years ago in May. But can not wait to photograph the Ospreys in the upcoming months along the Wildlife Drive. There are quite a few Osprey Platforms along the Wildlife Drive giving many opportunities to photograph them. You need a fairly long lens unless you want to severely crop your images. These images was taken with a Canon 400mm DO lens with a 2X Teleconverter.

My favorite birds to photograph are raptors. And then tightening the list are Eagles and Ospreys. Mostly because they are fun and have more action to photograph. Plus they are bigger subjects. Ospreys are easier for me to get to, plus there is lots of action around the many Osprey Nests/Platforms. These were taken at the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, Brigantine Division in Oceanville, NJ. Along the Wildlife Drive there are many Osprey Platforms. At this time of year there are still young Ospreys that have not fledged yet, so there is quite a bit of activity around the nests. Sometimes they are bringing food to the young Ospreys, or just hanging around the nests watching over them. They even come by with more sticks for the nest so there are lots of photo opportunities. Soon the young Ospreys will be flying around also giving lots of subjects to photograph.
These were taken with a Canon f/4 400mm DO lens, with a 1.4X Series III Teleconverter on a Canon 7D giving a full frame equivalent of 896mm, handheld.
