Went to Middleton’s Fish Camp on Blue Cypress Lake yesterday to shoot Ospreys and Osprey nests. Blue Cypress Lake is in the middle of nowhere – nearest town is Yew Haw Junction. Completely undeveloped and pristine – a gorgeous lake bounded by cypress forests.
We went out in a pontoon boat – pretty stable platform from which to shoot. Got fairly close to the nesting areas. My big beautiful telephoto lens got a workout.
This is one of the many photos taken of the Ospreys. This adult Osprey is coming in for a landing on the top of a mostly dead tree (their preferred nesting area). Besides the mature adults there were quite a few immature individuals in nests.
