About the Image(s)

Hey Everyone! Sorry to have missed out on last month. I was traveling and plain forgot. I am back now!

This is one of my favorite things to do. I sit on the beach and wait for Mama Osprey to come back to her nest. Lots of meditation happens between shots! I have taken pictures of Ospreys for years at various locations and I never seem to get tired of it!

I love the motion of your little friend. I believe that you might try a little faster shutter speed to make it a little sharper while still showing the motion. I like its eye making contact with me! Would love to see some more of those shots.   Posted: 06/12/2022 20:21:08

This is an interesting action nature shot. The head and the eye of the osprey are sharp. I would not be too fussed about the blurred wings, they are moving and you image emphasizes that. However I wonder how the image would have turned out if you had used camera settings similar to those Jim used in his action image, namely 1/6400, f/5.6 and ISO 500.
The image is nicely composed and I like that you have been able to get nearly to the same level as the bird to take this shot.
Well done   Posted: 06/15/2022 18:21:58
