Excellent image of the osprey. Their faces are in focus and the use of a shallow depth of field, throwing the background out of focus, works well. Just wonder what caused the difference in the 2 birds in terms of eye colors, and colors and patterns of the feathers. Adult and young bird? Good job!   Posted: 06/07/2020 12:08:20

Love the sharpness of the eyes and I believe there is a button in LR to correct animal red eye. Love the shallow depth of field. Nice composition.   Posted: 06/07/2020 18:07:52

Since I am not a bird expert, although I certainly would like to be, I can't make any comment on the difference in the color of the breast on the right...Also, the difference in their eye colors...is it because they are different ages, male or female, or what....Good sharp nature photo, and love the composition.   Posted: 06/09/2020 17:44:02

Good capture of the birds. Ospreys, when they hatch, have dark blue eyes. Nestling eyes change to blood red, then orange/yellow in juveniles, and finally yellow in adults! Wonderful thing, the internet - you find out all sorts of interesting things you didn't know you wanted to know!   Posted: 06/11/2020 10:31:08

Thanks for the research. Was not that close up so felt it was not red eye.   Posted: 06/13/2020 14:42:37

love this photograph and all the comments. Can't think of anything to add. Definitely a great photo. Their eye color and Brian's info makes this a very special image.   Posted: 06/13/2020 22:27:50
