    Nice incoming flight pose. I like the clutched talons and spread wings. I wish the green bit extended all the way across the frame, but nothing you could do about that. To my eyes I think the bird could use some more sharpening, maybe just on the head., but see what others say. TFS

    Nice pose on the bird. Like the composition with the nest at the bottom.

    Allen - Osprey are my favorite birds to capture so I always open anything Osprey. You captured a great landing pose showing off all her feathers but the light looks a bit harsh. I don't know how large a crop this is but the Osprey's head is not tack sharp. Looks like focus may have grabbed the wing to the right of the head. I can see the chick bottom left nest and I am surprised it does not have it's head up greeting the mother. I can't wait for them to return. Should be 57 days +-.

    Ditto all the good stuff above. It looks as if the underwings could be opened up a bit ...
