Image: Beauty of a mountain hike

Hiking in Mt. Giona, Greece, came across Mother Nature's many wonders. I really could have spent the entire day taking photos of flowers, but had to continue our hike.

Thanks Vicki for the comments on "Wet Foot"
These birds nest in the tall reeds around the pond so are a common site.

Hey Vicki
I often compare my photography to fishing but with a camera not a pole. I have about a half a dozen spots less than 30 minutes from the house that most of my pictures come from. I have learned over time depending on season, weather and rain fall when certain spots are going to be more active. As for the Osprey I was shooting gulls fishing that day and just happened to look up and saw the Osprey. Luckily I had the right camera setup and fired a quick burst. Air Delivery was one of the pictures from that burst.

Thanks for the comments on Honey Maker. The main advantage in using a telephoto for a macro is the greater working distance to the subject, handy for bees and skittish insects like dragon flies. The downside is it is a heavier setup to pack around.
