I don’t shoot many wildlife images for the simple fact that it can take an extraordinary level of patience and effort to capture decent looking photographs. This one in particular took nearly an hour and a half, and many dozens of exposures for me to finally capture one that I was satisfied with. I found that autofocus was useless because the osprey was arriving and departing too quickly, so I had to slowly setup manual focusing with each new arrival to the nest.
