Osprey Family @ St. Michaels, Maryland

Osprey - Pandion haliaetus (?)

 

One of my favorite photos from the year so far. On this day it was almost 100 degrees out, and to get this shot I took off from work and drove 2 hours to this nest. The shot I wanted to get was a shot of the female shading the chicks from the heat. I didn't get it this day, but I did get it 2 days later - yet to be posted...

 

(D500, 600mm f/4, 1.4x tc - f/11 1/2000th at ISO 1000)
