This Osprey was enjoying some Red Fin Sucker for breakfast when I came along. It always amazes me how much weight they can lift. I would like to dedicate this image to my wonderful friend Ingrid for who I have nothing but admiration for, she is a strong, determined and 100% lady.

Hi Rick. It looks as though this is another of God's creatures that prefers the brain for nutrients. Bears also love the salmon brains. It's a good shot; but I wish the DOF was larger. I think it needs more detail to the background. I like how you've framed it. Focus, colours and details are there in spades. Well done! TFS Trevor

Hi Rick,you caght very well this lucky oportunity,a magnificent capture whit a great quality of details and colors and a georgeous wings position,i like it! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Dearest friend, I thank you very much for adding this exceptional photo to my group (animals feeding"

There are so many wonder full details to discover - but the spread wings and the tense body say it all!
" You human better stay away" from my breakfast ( which by the way is really a big fish.)

The sharp details of the action, together with the natural colors make it a true pleasure to view your work, thanks for sharing it, and I add it to my favorites.

I also like the tight cropping drawing the eyes to the action. The strength of the big wings is amazing.

Thanks and hugs

Hi Rick.
What an amazing scene and so perfect picture. Captured scene is stunning and very expressive. I am impressed with excellent exposure and reproduction of feather colouration. Natural smooth BG is great canvas for this wild scene. My compliments and warm regards.

Hi Rick
This is one of those images which amaze. Perfect timing, perfect details and colors. And indeed, the fish seems quite big as compere with the osprey body. But not to forget the strong wings of the bird which help lifting.
Kind regards,

Hello Rick,
This is so beautiful. Very good picture.
Well done.
