Osprey Bella & Beau 2019
Nest Location: Cambridge, Maryland, Chesapeake Bay Region, USA
These are the posts of the 2019 27-week season of Osprey pair, Bella and Beau. Click on the title of the post you wish to read. It is my hope that you will enjoy their adventures and learn about the daily life of this amazing raptor, the Osprey.
The majority of my photos for this series are shot in RAW from my balcony about 200+ feet away where I’ve got just enough advantage height to almost see into the top of the platform. My equipment: Nikon D200 and D750, with a Nikon AF-S VR-Nikkor 70-200mm F2.8 lens combined with a Nikon Teleconverter (1.7x magnification), zooming all the way in. At photo processing, it is then necessary to crop at least 50% to share close-ups with you. The Bella & Beau series is not so much about high-quality photos (although I seriously strive to get the best, detailed shots for the storyline), as it is about the antics and adventures of an Osprey pair’s daily life and upbringing of their family.
An Empty Nest Now Until March 2020!
