In my travels, I often find myself noticing things that most people overlook. Case in point was the spotting of some sticks on a utility pole. The first thought through my head, was how in the hell did that get up there? Then it occurred to me, that I have seen this before. What I was seeing was the start of a nest. Unsure of what bird was building the nest, I noted the sight and returned a few days later to see how the construction was progressing. To my surprise, sitting perched on top of this utility pole were two magnificent birds of prey. Upon some investigation I learned that these were Osprey’s, and this was the first time I had seen them in this area. Over the coming weeks, I will return to the site to see how they are progression. The shots were snapped with a Canon 7d and a Sigma lens combination. Shot with an iso of 400 @ F8 and used a shutter speed of 1/500.
