Wayne and Carol T. I was able to catch a couple shots of Osprey fishing. The first shot was from the old pilings toward the dam. That looked like a quarter mile. I moved to the gates area. The bird watched me for 15~20 min. before going back to fishing. Everytime I looked at him he was looking at me. Finally after shooting 30~40 shots over head and panning with the birds path I started getting a few decent pics. When the bird went into the dives, I'd loose him every time. So I sat up one shot at start of dive and started shootin at the water when he splashed down. Thanks for the info..... I'll do better next time. The 40D was at it's match, though. More toys.
