    Are those photos from the same day, at the same reserve?
    If so, that is great.

    My daughter lives about 40 miles from that site.

    Hi pbelarge,
    Yes, these were taken the same day. Bolsa Chica is a great place, you should get your daughter hooked on nature photography and then visit her to go shooting there.

    For the safety of the birds, the nearest you can get to the nest is about 100 yards and since it's buried inside the tree it was quite dark, so this was a very difficult shot (1,000mm, f/8, 1/640) for any camera to make and I was just happy to be able to get anything half way decent as opposed to not getting anything at all. Technically it's not a perfect shot (the 2x TC really hurts IQ wise) but I did like the composition of the pair roosting their egg.

    Thanks for your comment,
