We have just posted the event page & details for an osprey photography holiday, ospreys are a favourite subject of ours, nesting, diving & skimming the lochs of the Scottish Highlands, they were one of the first subjects that both pushed our abilities & gave us an adrenalin rush, our latest tour ventures further afield than Scotland however; we are heading to Blue Cypress Lake in Florida, where there are between 200 & 300 osprey nests located in the cypress trees around the lake itself.
Spanning seven days, the NaturesLens Blue Cypress Lake Osprey Photography Holiday will include day & evening boat trips out on to the lake on most days, it also includes a day visit to the Viera Wetlands Centre a haven for birdlife & a day visit to an alligator farm with a large wading bird rookery – both offer great photographic opportunities. The timing of the trip is deliberate so that we can observe the parents bringing ﬁsh to their new offspring. We should be able to photograph Ospreys on their nests at eye level, diving for ﬁsh or gathering nest material.
Bed & breakfast accommodation & transportation within Florida is all included, we are staying in a comfortable hotel in the Vero Beach area of Florida.
On this trip, we are also available to accommodate non-photographers, & have a special rate available – but any such non-photographer must be accompanied by a photographer; the non-photographer rate includes accommodation & airport transfer transportation but none of the activities.
The 2016 trip is being run at a discounted rate as it is the initial year of NaturesLens ofﬁcially running the trip – in subsequent years, the cost will be at least £500 more. 2016 pricing is set at £2250 for a photographer & £1050 for a non-photographer.
These prices exclude international flights to Orlando airport. You can hold a place now with a deposit of £500.
If you would like to join NaturesLens in Florida for the Blue Cypress Lake Osprey Photography Holiday, you can view the full details of the trip on the event page.
We believe that Blue Cypress Lake & this trip will offer amazing opportunities to photograph hundreds of ospreys nesting above a large lake each morning & evening.
