Nice capture. You got him before he got the fish turned all the way (Osprey turn fish pointing head first as soon as possible after the catch. Don't know if it's for wind resistance or sightseeing:whistle: ).

Shoot, learn and share. It will make you a better photographer.

Most Excellent... :thumbsup: :judge:

The osprey turn their fish into the wind in order to drown them faster. I have seen Osprey circle around for five minutes before returning the catch to the nest.

Stellar shot.

Man, I want some of those "white lenses". For now, this is as close as I'm going to get.


But it does keep my coffee warm. :)

I'm toying with this purchase myself. Does it zoom out for those extra large latte and Kahluah shots? :rofl:

Sadly no. But it does stop people when they see use drinking from a $5000 lens. :cheer:
I think B&H has them for $30 but I have seen them on eBay for about $12. They were photographers' premiums at the Vancouver Olympics.

Nice shot! That's the kind of shots I want, but I have yet to even seen an osprey near water, always flying above.
