Osprey nest at Iroquois Island

On July 11th and 20th I traveled an hour south of Ottawa to Iroquois & Harkness Islands with my Pentax K-3 mk.II and my Sigma 150-500mm F5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM to view and photograph an Osprey (Pandion haliaetus) nest with chicks. All photos are hand-held using OS mode 2.

Over all I have yet to be disappointed in my Sigma super-zoom lens. It has performed flawlessly since I bought it last Autumn..
