    Nice shot, i have stopped entering competitions at our club because no matter what the subject is people always managed to enter Natural History shots and 9 times out of 10 the judges are biased towards Natural History

    Coastalconn, there are some defining works for artists, and this is definitely one of them. Good job.

    Thanks again everyone! A few people have asked me the specs on this one.. Nikon D300, Tamron 200-500. F8, ISO 400, 1/800th sec at 500mm. For those that don't know the story I spent a few weeks researching the Osprey behavior (low tide, sun and wind at my back) and 7 mornings of waiting to get this shot. It flew directly over my head and it actually dripped on me. This shot is from about 55 feet if memory serves me...

    Tony is a good friend of mine. He was shooting Ospreys with me during my quest. He got his best shot one morning before I got there. I got this one one a the few mornings he wasn't there!
