Not an Osprey in sight.....


Ever since I took the not so good shots of the Osprey up in the communications tower near Hillarys Beach last weekend I've been back down there with my long lens a few times on a mission to catch a much better close up. No luck, either they've moved on for the time being or they see me coming and vamoose! Not wanting to go home empty handed I had a quick wonder over to the dog beach to see if there were many four footed cuties to snap (if they happened to be attached to two footed cuties all the better haha!) it was 6pm and despite the wind being up a bit the beach was crowded with Perthites and their best buddies having a grand time. Only one more sleep till Santa comes, I hope you're all suitably excited! Enjoy your Christmas Eve, take care..see you on Christmas Day.....

  4. That looks like fun, Grace. Is carrying a camera a good technique for meeting cute guys?

  5. Looks like a perfect way to spend a perfect day. There is a very soggy pooch in the third photo. Your next post-osprey pooch assignment is a dog-shake moment with droplets flying everywhere. [I wouldn't ask if I could do it myself, honest!]

  8. You should consult Jilly about photographing dogs on the beach - she's the expert. Have you ever looked at http://www.rivieradogs.com/? I still can't quite deal with the Christmas in summer thing.

  10. Hi Grace. These are lovely clear crisp images of Christmas on the beach. No doubt the Osprey will return when you least expect it. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2013. Cheers J.

  12. Always love a beach scene. I've just been looking and up near Exmouth breeding season is June to November. Maybe it was a false feeling of a need to nest. Interesting to note that Telstra is not heartless about the birds nesting in their facilities.
