    Wow, nor really sure where the time goes. Winter was very dark and dismal around here and I really didn't see much when I did make it out. But, luckily, with the arrival of spring my favorite subject has returned in force. I have actually been able to successfully read 3 Osprey bands in the past month and they came back as being banded in 98,00 and 01 so the population seems to be doing pretty well.. I made a big upgrade to the D850 about a month ago and so far I absolutely love it. Figured I would share some recent images. Thanks for looking and comments welcome..

    Nice! Real Great images. I’ve been a bit lax this winter too, and would like to start posting here on tap a talk some. Your pictures might just be the inspiration I needed to get back to a more regular photographing regime.

    Stunning set! Since I can't nominate the whole thread for POTM will have to pick a favorite. Have to go with #2 although that last one is just gorgeous as well!

    It is good to see you back. Shots number four and five are simply spectacularly beautiful. Again, it's great to see you back!

    Outstanding! Love seeing your photos. Can't pick a favorite, but #6 is priceless.

    Come back more often. Gives me inspiration and a reason to keep trying.
