The Somone lagune in Senegal inhabits many ospreys. This one just caught a big fish. Hope you like it.

Nice shot! A favorite bird by mine.
Nice to see it with the catch.
Good sharpness and nice colors, but I think it
needs a little more space on the top and right side.

Hallo Zeno
A spectacular capture. I like how sharp the fish is in the osprey's talons. The image is well composed, with lovely detail and a great point of view. A big smiley for this! Best regards and thanks for sharing.

Hi Zeno,spectacular capture of this osprey with its big dinner,truly perfect in a rich scenery and with the usual great quality,i like it!Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

The bird looks elegant with the half eaten fish in possession, Zeno.
The eye in particular looks beautiful from your perspective. The plumage of the bird is also well defined. Only the white parts seem to have been over-exposed.

Fabulous clarity, that of this photograph, Zeno friend! With the bonus of seeing the sea eagle in full lunch, with a bloody fish between their powerful claws. Beautiful detail of the wing feathers and stunning portrait of your head (especially his brilliant and terrible look)
Congratulations. Great job and thanks for sharing this African specimen with all TN friends.

From Argentina,

Bonjour Zeno,
La lumière ne me semble pas très bien exploité mais le sujet est tout de même bien valorisé dans une très belle scène de la vie sauvage.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
