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
