Picture of the Day - "Flight" - April 26, 2016


Went for a drive today over to Cape Jourmaine to check out the lighthouse. On the way, as usual, we were checking out the birds in the sky. Just outside Port Elgin, we saw three birds in the sky. We stopped and started taking pictures. We happened upon a group of four Osprey and a possible nest. We got quite a few shots as they circled around for 10 to 15 minutes. The only problem was the circling off in the distance and when they came close the were ducking behind the trees. We did manage to get a few good shots though. :) Taken with my Canon 70D, Canon 100-400 mm @ 40 0mm with a 2x teleconverter, 1/500 sec, f/11 and ISO 200
