The Ospreys were out soaring and calling back and forth over the house today. Six in total. I'm thinking some flight training for the young :) This was my first attempt at some in flight shots. I know they are not very good, I was rushed and kept loosing my balance shooting almost straight up. I was just happy to get some in frame at a decently fast shutter speed. Hopefully I can have more time and be better prepared next time.

These are really not that bad for a first attempt. You managed to get some detail in the underside of the wings - something that is not always possible when shooting birds against a blue sky.

Really nice, with a bit of cropping they would be great

Way better than MY first attempts at Osprey! I think the first Osprey I got pictures of, I had to explain that they even WERE Osprey because they were such tiny little specks. :lmao:

With six around to practice on, and doing this well on a first go, you'll be getting coastalconn-quality shots in no time!

Nice, but resolution on the low side though. Heavy cropping?
