    Dan I have never had a good view of an osprey yet alone got a decent photograph, having said that I think it's a fine capture but I am a little unsure over the processing. Have you applied NR, it looks a little smooth to me....... but that may be because I haven't photographed one!

    Thanks Jon, I never use NR on the birds.... the BG is smooth because it is a half mile away...

    Nice stick for the nest. Nice light. There is a shadow under the primaries of the near wing that would have been eliminated had the wing been fully raised. Sharp and nicely processed. I am not a fan of the far shoreline cutting though the subject. An all-green BKGR would have been mega.

    Another nice osprey frame. Bird looks very concentrated.
