Today I was lucky enough to get a lot of good shots of osprey, flying, eating and just being osprey. The area is the kalgan river in Albany (western Australia) I normally see terns and ducks there more often than not but today it was mainly this pair fishing and eating. I sat and watched them for ages, its time consuming but sometimes its worth it. sometimes its all about patience and persistence. I had some shots Id taken at distance and was wondering how long they would hang around but was amazed when they landed within just a few metres of me and watched me. The close ups are uncropped, shot at between 350mm and 500mm, I actually had to zoom in to get them all in the shot, amazing. They only left when they heard voices coming down the walk track. I am reasonably pleased with these shots, they could be better, maybe not so grainy but I’m just happy to have got them
(Please click on individual photos to see large versions) The bikes were flying down the hill from the top of mount Clarence today, jumps, old cars etc were part of the route, plenty of spectators enjoying great weather. A bit hard to get the prime spots photography wise but I got plenty of shots of the bikes and the people.

Lots of oohs and ahhhs when they would fall. No-one was hurt. I got there late and did not have a great spot, lots of my shots show the pole in the wrong place but considering that situation I cant complain at the shots Ive managed to get. Very much out of my comfort zone with these
Had the pleasure of photographing this event, love the action, amazing riders, so brave, or crazy, either way it makes for some amazing action captures
