Lunch to go
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|One of the benefits of living at the beach is the access to wildlife. While photographing terns, this osprey came gliding by. This was the first of 4 shots, and it is my favorite. I wish I had seen him a bit sooner, to get a head on shot.|
Living in Florida, I tend to take these marvelous birds for granted. This summer in Yellowstone, I was excited to get to watch a big horned sheep give birth, but everyone else was more excited about an osprey nest. I guess it all depends on what you are used to seeing.

Good timing. Technically the image is not that great, but you have captured a great moment. Thanks.
Nice image, I read somewhere that these were the laziest of the birds of prey, and when not breeding some birds fly less then 6 minutes a day...to the lake, catch a fish, fly to their perch and eat it...then sit there all day until they are hungry again.

Good timing, and good details.
Good shot! You've done very well to capture a shot of the bird and the prey. Although you're right a more head-on shot might have been slightly better you've still managed to let us see the eye of the bird, so I don't think I'll nitpick much on that. For some reason the image doesn't look quite as sharp as I'd expect though - is the original sharp? I keep expecting to hear "bombs away" and see the fish falling ;) Very nicely done, thanks for sharing :-D
Very good shot !
Nice picture with this fish under this bird.
I really like it. Good composition.
