    Hi all. Here's another Osprey shot from the sequence I took recently. I know the cropped wings are not to everyone's liking, but, as with my last post it was too close, and I like it as is.

    D500/500PF, 1/3200th sec@f5.6, iso1000, manual mode, hh.

    I like this one better than your previous Paul...The talons in focus, makes a big difference...and what a great view of them...Nice detail and colours throughout...I am not a fan of this crop, but that's me, others, including yourself will like this type of image...It sure is different, and what a great issue to have....an Osprey being too close.

    I love the very tight flight shot and all the accompanying detail. Bummer that the head is slightly turned away. You might consider removing the schmutz on the base of the lower mandible.
