Congrats with the publication. I'm truly impressed by the quality of your osprey images, they are amazing. We (sometimes) have had one or two nests nearby, but I never managed to get images like that. Thanks for sharing this story and the images with us!

What dedication!
Great story. I'm in awe of your ability to capture such detail of birds in flight.

It's so easy to glance over some nature shots and not realize what went into them. I remember a video I rented from the library about a NatGeo photographer who went into a South American rainforest to get pictures of a certain creature. It involved waiting in very hot and wet conditions for days or weeks at a time and all the tribulations and discomforts he had to endure. He got the shots he needed to complete his assignment but when he got home he got sick with a severe form of Leishmaniasis which the symptoms, he said, lasted for months, left him very weak and unable to work, and could have killed him.

Another story I remember seeing involved a traveler (don't think she was a photographer) who spent a lot of time in the wet conditions of a rainforest in SE Asia. She wound up with what she described as crunching sounds inside her head and a large bump on top of her head. This had been going on for days when she finally decided to seek out medical attention. Turns out a Bot Fly which landed on her head in Asia had burrowed its eggs inside her scalp. When the larvae grew big enough it would eat her scalp from the inside in order to get out. It was surgically removed.

I'm only telling you these stories to scare the bejesus out of you. Don't go into the wild unprepared for all of the different wildlife you can encounter that could ruin your day. Parasites are no fun and you don't want to bring them home either.

Congratulations on being published.
