About the Image(s)

This is I believe a juvenile Osprey just cruising by looking down on the ground for something to eat. Got the shot using a 400mm lens with a 1.4 teleconverter at 550mm. 1/1000 second at F5 and ISO 64. I was using a Wembley head on a tripod.
Yes, no real behavior other than slowly flying.

I would suggest brightening the eye a bit. You certainly get the feeling he is gliding through the sky. Nicely done.   Posted: 09/12/2021 05:52:04
