Not the best one from this morning, but the background colouring I think makes this a bit special.

A great morning at the osprey, plenty of birds, but not so many dives. Still time yet.

Brilliant! The detail is so striking and with the background blurred, it stands out even more.

Thanks all.

Image taken at Rothiemurchus Fishery. They hold daily photographic sessions throughout the months the ospreys are resident. No guarantee of action of course, but they are pretty regular. The other issue is the size of the fishing lake, today a lot of the dives were on the far side from the hides.
