Hello Mario,
Beautiful in flight capture of the Osprey floating wings wide spread on the wind.
Altough at first glance I though there was to much space on top, above the bird, there really is'nt because the bird is looking that way.
Excellent composition, sharpness and lighting and due to that feather details are wonderful and I love the way the bird is looking and the color contrast between the yellow eye and blue sky, against wich the Osprey does stand out perfectly.
Very well done.
Thanks for sharing.
Best regards and have a nice Sunday evening,

Nice panning work Mario. You managed a lot of detail in your osprey and very good exposure.

Hi Mario,

Fantastic capture of this Osprey in-flight. Marvelous colors with perfect black. Amazing details especially of the wings and tail feathers. I like the way he is placed low in the sky. Wonderful background and the frame is perfect.

Hi Mario,
Wonderful shot of the Osprey with awesome wings span and sharp details. Against the blue sky as BG it looks majestic in flight. The open spaces really presents a different dimension and I like your POV to portray it. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

A very nice inflight shot of this truely magnificant raptor. The blue sky really brings the subject out just the way I like it. :)
