    This Osprey attacked the Eagle nest for 10 minutes. What a show to watch. Here are a few shot's (mid-day light was a bit harsh)

    Love it! Great action shots :)

    The last shot is really confusing though? I see its head, I see its tail... The eagle is just confusing the hell out of me. Haha

    Did the Eagle defend his nest. What a great show to witness let alone capture. Great work

    Thank you so much for posting this incredible site to see. I've never been interested in photographing birds, but this makes me see birds in a whole new way. The third shot is strange to me too, I can't figure out how the eagles head is that position:thumbup:.
     
  6. The last one is awesome!

    Thats crazy. What a brave Osprey. I was hoping to scroll down and see the Osprey clenched in the Eagles talons.

    Incredible capture!

    Eagle did defend the nest...but every day it seems somebody was to mess with the Eagle!
    He does like to steal fish from Ospreys!

    The osprey is between the camera and the eagle, so the eagle is turned facing us. Looks like he also has his tail turned towards us.

    Nice pictures as well, what length lens and how far are you from the nest?
