I toke this picture in la Baie des Vhaleurs in Gaspésie this summer.

The Osprey (Pandion haliaetus), also known colloquially as seahawk, fish hawk or fish eagle, is a medium-large fish-eating bird of prey. However, It is not the same as a sea-eagle. It is found on all continents except Antarctica although in South America it occurs only as a non-breeding migrant. It is widely distributed because it tolerates a wide variety of habitats, nesting in any location which is near a body of water and provides an adequate food supply. It is divided into four similar subspecies.

Because the Osprey has many unique characteristics, it has been given its own taxonomic genus, Pandion, and family, Pandionidae. It is a medium-sized raptor, reaching 60 cm (24 in) in length with a 1.8 m (6 ft) wingspan. It is brown on the upperparts and predominantly whitish on the head and underparts, with a brownish eyepatch and wings

bonjour Marie

tu a cliqué sur la caméra au bon moment
je pense il va attaquer sa proie

j'aime l'angle de vue et le cadrage de l'image,
les détails du sujet sont excellent et WOW je vois que
tu es allé avec 1/4000 secondes, TFS

Hi Marie,
this is a good action shot of the osprey and I like the look of it's talons looking much like fists.These are very serious birds indeed and are excellent fishers.We have these birds here in Alberta but I have yet to see one but I know it is only a matter of time.There ios someloss of detail in your shot and that is understandable as the light looks like it wasn't the best at the time.I like this one and thank you for sharing it with us. Bob

Hello Marie
A nice action shot of this Osprey coming in for a landing or for a meal. I can really get a feel for how large the Osprey wing span is. He looks graceful as he lands. Nice composition.

Bonjour Marie
Très belle pose du rapace, excellent timing et point de vue ideal, ce n'est pas techniquement ta meilleur photo car je pense que tu as du pas mal recadrer et perdre ainsi en netteté, mais ce n'est pas tous les jours qu'on voit un Balbuzard pêcheur
bravo Marie,
a bientot,
amicalement,
Pat

bonjour marie
bonne reaction,et la netteté est relativement bonne.
c'est juste dommage que le ciel ne soit pas d'un autre couleur,le blanc gene un peu.tu aurais peut etre pu le coloré en PP.

Hello Marie,

Great action shot; it's really difficult to get decent pictures of birds in flight; movement, lighting, distance and wing position are all factors. But you have done a wonderful job in capturing this raptor in a great pose.

Kind regards,

Mike

Hi Marie,
A fine capture of the beautiful bird expecially knowing how wary of humans they are. Excellent POV. Very well done.

Salut Marie,
Oui 1/4000 c'est surement ce que ça prend pour figer un tel oiseau avec de rapide battement d'aile pour faire du surplace.
Merci, Roger

Hola Marie. Otra hermosa foto, exelentes detalles de el vuelo de de esta Ave. Las alas sin extender lucen bellamente. Luis52.

Wow! Impressionnant!

Le mouvement peut bien être figé à 1/4000 secondes :)! C'est une très belle capture Marie, pas facile à réaliser. Malgré le manque évident de lumière de cette journée (le ciel blanc), tu as capté de très bons détails dans une belle prise de vue et composition. Ils sont tellement impressionnants à voir, ça ne m'est arrivé qu'une seule fois et j'espère avoir le loisir de répéter l'expérience. Bravo!

Hola Marie,
