[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Ospreys are circumglobal. This individual was fishing for carp that inhabit a chain of large ponds that are part of the final stage of sewage treatment near the town of Hässleholm in Scania. Apart from carp the ponds team with all kinds of aquatic life.
I used my Canon 300mm telephoto plus teleconverter.

What a beautiful photo of a Osprey (Fiskgjuse i Swedish). I think it is a good composition with the diaogonal line and the intense look in the eyes. What Canon 300 mm telephoto lens did you use, 300/f4 IS or?

Maybe you should try to adjust the white balance a bit?

Hi Ivan,

Very nice composition and brightness. I like the sunlight coming through the feathers which emphasises the transparency, Sarah

Your timing was perfect for this shot. Finding the right exposure for an under-the-wings POV is tricking, you manage to get it. Details are good. The oblique composition and the back lighting make this a very beautiful image. Well done, Ivan.

Great Osprey shot. Very sharp. Framing is perfect.

Hi Ivan,
good portrait with great pose of this Osprey. You have done a excellent job!

Dear Ivan,
Excellent capture of osprey. Good POV, sharpness.

Hello Ivan

WOW ! great close-up in-flight shot of the Osprey
scanning the ground for prey with its wide open wings,
fine POV, the wide open wings pose and diagonal
framing with the back-light warm light (at the wings)
it is giving great dynamism to the image, TFS
