There looking at you

I spent some time drifting in the Zodiac trying to a clean shot of this Osprey through the tall grass. This is not the cleanest one I came up with, but I like the eye contact. This photograph was taken in Old Lyme on Sept.20, at 9:48 AM.
Thank you for stopping by.

Nice one, Peter. I have only once photographed an Osprey. This is a great shot on a perch. Nice background too.

Nice look at the osprey with a nice environment to add to the image.

Good pose with that stare and the background works well with the Osprey. Overall, nicely composed in the frame.

Excellent light, pose, and background. Well composed image with nice eye contact.

Quite a stare! I like the pose and BG but it looks a bit soft. Heat shimmer?

Hi David b., Keith, Allen, David S. and Diane.
