‘Osprey Photography Heaven’

, , ,

Below are some of the images captured by one of our clients on the recent Ospreys of Blue Cypress Lake Photography Holiday, the photography holiday was described by one guest as ‘exceeding all my expectations of how many ospreys we would be able to photograph’, whilst another stated ‘this is osprey photography heaven’!

These comments are from guests who have spent a lot of time in Scotland, photographing the ospreys in the Highlands – principally Aviemore; instead of waiting several hours for an osprey to dive, each early morning boat trip in Florida saw many ospreys overhead, in their nests, calling, fishing, chasing one & other – every type of behaviour was on show, for hours at a time!

Below are some of the images captured by Simon Armstrong, one of the guests on the Ospreys of Blue Cypress Lake Photography Holiday that we recently conducted.
