    Fantastic shots, Eric!

    What strikes me as incredible, (aside from your ability to snap these), is the effortless expression of the osprey. Very cool.

    One quick observation: the color of the sky is so consistent, (hardly, if any, a discernible gradient), it almost looks super-imposed... Any enhancement or effect there?

    Nothing super imposed....Little adjustments with brightness is about it.
