Dive Bombing an Osprey

Had lots of fun taking Osprey photos on my Indiana trip.  Their nest was still active with two large chicks along with two protective parents.

The parents had some challenges when flying as several small birds would chase and dive bomb them.  It was obvious when the Osprey would take an abrupt turn that they were being chased.  Made for some interesting flight shots.

Ended up using all focus points as it was a challenge to keep a single focus point on the fast moving action.
