    I'm Looking At You...

    I shot this today, the bird is an Osprey which I have been shooting a lot of recently. C&C welcomed and appreciated. Thank you for viewing.

    What I have been trying too but mine are always flying. Need to find the nests.

    As for the shot, I love it - great closeup, angle and expression.

    Thanks Paul, I didn't try to copy your closeups of the raptors but they did give me the idea. I had shot this Osprey from about 40 feet with the bird filling the frame, then when processing I liked the eye and expression. So I cropped it to highlight both for a closer view. Keep shooting my friend.

    Thanks Bobo, much appreciated. Find a tree where they roost to eat. When they catch a fish they fly with it to a tree where they can eat it. When they are occupied eating you can approach closer.

    LOL Joe, it's not like I own the close up corner. My comment "Oh no you didn't" was what the bird looked to be saying. I am envious that you have found a perch low enough to enable a shot. Nice work.

    This is an absolutely great pic. I don't want him looking at ME though. That beak looks dangerous!
