Not the best quality as I am still messing around with what I can get away with in the Adobe Photoshop timeline

They're baaack...finally! I've been prepping for osprey to return to the area and spotted my first of the season during my morning run. Went out to the state park and found only this lone bird.

Fast forward to yesterday and my what a difference a week makes. More birds coming in, nest repair in progress.

And then the fighting started. This nest must be considered prime real estate for the osprey. Last year I witnessed some fighting over it, yesterday I found a pair chilling peacefully and minding their own business. Other birds were flying back and forth working in earnest on repairing damaged nests. The pair were suddenly very much on edge. I was just getting my first good workout with tracking using the 100-500 + 1.4x on the R5, picked up the bird on the right of the image and followed him in. I thought he was just going to land somewhere, and BAM!!!

I didn't anticipate this, and was kind of blown away when I realized what just happened. The defender won this round, he scored the only points of the battle (see pic #3) - "don't start none, won't be none". :)
