Johanna, I was on a whale watch boat as we were heading out to sea. The Captain advised us that we were coming up to a buoy/marker in the waterway that had a Osprey nest which gave me a minute or so to get set up with my 300F4L IS.

I shot several pics and am especially pleased to have captured both Mother and Chick from the second deck of the boat. We were +/- 100' from the nest.

The Captain had never seen the chick through several outing in the sound. This was a first for him.

Thanks for your comments Johanna.

Where are you from?
