    Outstanding set of images. I really like the last one. What do you mean by "from about 700"?

    Thanks everyone.

    "Outstanding set of images. I really like the last one. What do you mean by "from about 700"?"

    When I got to the spot where I had a somewhat clear view of the nest, my shutter finger was very active. In 45 minutes I took about 700 shots.
    Many of them look the same at 10 shots pre second. I was trying to guess when take offs and landings were going to happen.
    The birds fooled me a lot on this day, but it was good practice.

    The view of an empty nest at 150mm.
    I'm on a bluff that drops about 40 feet. You have to shimmy down a bit to get to this one opening to view the nest.
