A superb capture, in both senses, but I find the large text very distracting as it draws the eye away from the Photograph.

In a word - Stunning! Superb capture, I didn't even notice the text at the bottom, the osprey is very much centre stage ... Carol

I do have to agree with Rock , The image is out standing I can not begin to imagine the excitement you must of gone through when you captured this shot . But the framing does not give it credit

A very beautiful and stunning example of capturing or native birds of prey in this magnificent photograph, which for me has all the right ingredients, to make such a great photograph.

Thanks all.

Thanks Brian, Ken and Gilbert for the UAs.

The presentation of my images has been the same for nearly two years now. May not be everyone's taste but the framing will remain as is until I get fed up with it. Sorry Smile

Bloody hell . . . . . what more can you say! Absolutely superb, everything is simply perfect.

What camera & lens do you use? Grin

Taken with the Nikon 200-400, though as close to 200mm it could just as easily have been taken with a 70-200 or 70-300 lens.

Just a matter of being in the right hide at the time a bird decides to come out in the direction of the hide. Only other factor really was that the buffer on the camera did not fill as it did for another photographer.
