It's about time you got home with the Take-out - Osprey returning to nest carrying fish dinner
Photograph - Photograph
On the morning of 6/23/20, I went out to a local Stoughton-area Osprey nest, set up tripod with my longest (aside from a telescope, which actually wouldn't be a bad choice here) 300mm lens coupled with 2X teleconverter and sat patiently and waited for the parent(s) to show up with lunch. Finally they did, and I was lucky enough to get this shot. It isn't quite what I had envisioned (that being the Osprey zooming in to actual nest with the fish), but I liked the humor of this one, with the mother (father?) in nest with fledgling impatiently looking for lunch. Followers on my FaceBook page believe the fish to be a Koi, likely plucked from a decorative yard pond!
