    Wow, that IS close and sharp. Nicely done.

    Not too keen on you being there it seems in #1.

    Thanks Bobo, not too keen indeed. He was giving me that stare and glare for interupting his meal.

    Thanks Nat, I appreciate you viewing and commenting. The first Osprey I ever saw was on the eastern shore while out on my brothers sailboat. In a nest on a platfrom. Where I go in Florida there is a large marsh next to a large lake. The Osprey fish in the lake and then fly to a roost in the marsh to eat their catch. Quite easy to get close.

    Man, if Looks could kill you would only have gotten shot #1. These are great shots they capture the majectic traits of the bird.

    I personally like shot #2. Where was this shoot taken?

    Thanks Daniel, I appreciate you commenting and taking time to view. All these images were shot at a nature preserve in Polk County, Florida. That is in the central part of the state.

    Nice series Joe. I love the fact you got nice sharp bright eye shots. Seems to be a tough bird to get the eyes as nice as you have.

    I also love the eyes in these. What great shots! I especially love #2 because of the composition, the tree, the fish and the direction the bird is facing. It's as if he's landed and making sure others have not followed to take his prize. Beautifully clear shots!

    Nice captures Joe, can you crop 2 more to bring it up close? Its a great pose and would look fantastic with a tighter crop.

    Thanks Paul, I have been paying more attention to where the light/sun is. I think because the bird was well illiminated the eyes reflected it brightly. So now if something is in the deep shade or the shadow side is towards me I just appreciate the view without clicking an image.

    Thank you Terri, I appreciate you taking time to view and comment. Your comment says in words what I liked in the composition of image #2.

    Thanks Wayne. I can crop image #2 tighter, it would show the bird larger. I liked the top of the tree in the image to show the bird and the environment that it chooses to eat after it has caught it's breakfast.
