Bird Watching

This osprey flew by and gave me a close look , thus the caption. Cropped to about 50% of the original.

Hi Richard, love the look you are getting here and the composition looks good to me. Settings seem spot on. I can barely see some quality loss on the bird from the large crop but it isn’t a deal breaker to my eye.

A dynamic composition and great look from the Osprey. Nice underwing detail and soft light on the white feathers. Nice sharpness and IQ looks good to me.

Great title, Richard. I really like the look it’s giving you. The plumage is interesting-it looks much more worn on its left wing than the right.

Hi Richard
Having spent a fair amount of time photographing Osprey and I agree with all the comments above, Nice work.
