As promised in the last entry, I am uploading a few of the best images from four days spent in a hide shooting osprey in Finland. All the images were shot with the blisteringly fast combination of the Nikon D3 camera and the 300mm f2.8 lens. I'm a big fan of the head-on perspective in raptor photography and the equipment did not disappoint despite this most demanding of auto-focusing challenges.
Here's a brief video showing the perspective from the hide. What you are seeing is two aborted dives followed by one complete dive with the osprey flying away from the hide.
