Gone fish­ing

NPhoto - - Over To You … -

Dur­ing the past few weeks a young fe­male os­prey has been feed­ing on the fish from a nearby lo­cal reser­voir at Weston Turville near Ayles­bury in Buck­ing­hamshire, UK. I, to­gether with many other bird­watch­ers and pho­tog­ra­phers, have been lucky enough to watch this rare (in th­ese parts) bird catch fish while build­ing up its en­ergy re­serves needed for the long mi­gra­tory flight back to Africa.

My cam­era is a Nikon D90 and I used a Sigma 150500mm f/5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM with a shut­ter speed of 1/2000 sec, aper­ture of f/6.3, and the ISO set to Auto. Ni­cholas Razey, via email What a great op­por­tu­nity to add a photo of some­thing rare to your port­fo­lio, Ni­cholas. We’re not sur­prised that so many other peo­ple were keen to see the bird for them­selves too. Those are su­per shots of the os­prey; she’s nicely framed with no cut-off feath­ers. The long reach of your Sigma must have come in very handy.

What a great shot of an os­prey on the wing
