very good moment to capture this beautiful birds..
I like the POV and the very good apperture and the 1/400 obturator to freeze the image and with a great shapness.

Super kathy! Wow! You had a couple if not more perhaps a whole week or so of great opportunities...You must feel very Blessed. I was worried about you a bit today as the sun was hot...but my legs did not carry me all around... only half way.

Super shot Kathy!!
Love the angle you got of those magnificent wings. Wonderful detail and color, especially against that clear blue sky.
I hope someday to get a shot of an Osprey, but it may be way down the road since I rarely even get a glimpse of one.

Good shot of the bird of the prey landing on to it's Eyrie (an eagle's nest), ofcourse it is an Osprey. Nice view from front of the take.

Fantastic shot. I've seen plenty on the east coast at the outer banks, but wasn't able to get a clear shot. This one is very good, a bit tighter crop so the eye would have been more visible may be nice

What a wonderful photo in a perfect timing. The frontal POV is a very good choice. Great composition. Good sharpness, details and natural colours.

A fine photo, nicely captured at the right moment when the young bird was flexing its developing flight muscles. An interesting story behind it too, but do be careful around cars, drivers seem to have no patience with nature photographers blocking them, regardless of how good the resulting photo may be. ;-)
