Osprey with 140 mm!
A excellent shot good fine detail shown in the bird, colours are good and natural. Well stalked and waited for. Only I would have put it in portrait mode ( have put copy in your workshop)

Good photo of this Osprey. Indeed very close. Excellent natural colours and sharpness. Pleasant blue sky as BG. Very good composition.

I understand your excitement well. It's incredible what the compact cameras with good lenses can do today, unthinkable a few years ago. But of course your original technique of approaching an Osprey is the cherry on top of the pie. Thanks for letting us in to your secrets. Well done, Tom.

Wow! What an incredible shot!!! I saw the workshop and am still impressed by your approach! At 140mm it is very remarkable to get such a picture! You managed perfectly the exposition and the nice blue sky enhances very well the osprey.
Very, very nice picture!

What a beauty is this Osprey, and how well did you capture it. The details are seen with such great clarity and I especially refer to and fancy the beak that looks like a hook and which I am sure can do lots of harm to its prey. I just love the detail in the feathers and the yellow in the eye. The Osprey is a stunning bird which I have not yet have the oppertunity to capture or to see from close by. That is one of the reasons I like this image. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
