The Osprey are here!

I have been trying to capture the osprey on the camera for a few weeks now. This morning we had three osprey hunting in our bay of islands. I think I got a few good pictures finally, but I am not completely satisfied. They fly so fast out of the camera frame it is hard to stay with them and to complicate matters even further I had black flies trying to get into my eyes. But my, aren't they beautiful!

We also have a family of starlings living in the eaves of our house. I can't see the babies but I sure can hear them. I took some pictures of mama bird through the bedroom window. She could sense that she was being watched and several times she swallowed the worm and flew away.
