Osprey returning to her nest

Even with my 300mm lens, I had to crop out an awful lot of the photo to get in this tight, as the pillars where the osprey nest are quite a distance out from the dikes.  Even though it isn't as crisp as I would like; I am getting used to a new camera with a different focus system, and the morning haze makes the photo look a bit noisy - I don't care.  I am grateful to have captured this moment of the mama osprey returning to her nest with building materials while her little one looks on.  Plus, there are three starlings hanging out at the base of the nest, probably looking to sneak off with any leftover tidbits!
