I don't photograph birds very often because a) I don't have the patience, and b) don't really have the equipment necessary for really good shots. But, I learned of a roadside osprey nest in the next county and decided to try my luck with my Olympus OM-D E-M5, and my newly acquired Panasonic 100-300 zoom lens. My first efforts (yesterday) didn't yield much. but this afternoon, I got really lucky. When I arrived, there was no activity at all at the nest. But I decided to set up anyway and hope for the best. (One thing I've learned is that you have to be ready to shoot at a moment's notice.) Well, as I said I got REALLY lucky.....Within 5 MINUTES, I saw a bird in the distance, still not really sure whether it was one of the Ospreys. Suddenly, it made a beeline towards the nest. I zone focused at the nest and fired off about 15 shots in burst mode (handheld ). Here's what I got (These are each cropped by about 40-50%): 1. 2. 3. 4. Not bad for a "lowly" m43 system!
