[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On a day where I was spending many hours shooting nesting Osprey, this one took a low level pass over me to check me out. He looked right at me, and I at him.

Hallo Eric
This image is great, but what I find the most appealing is the eyes of this Osprey that looks at you as if it want to look right through you. I like the full framed composition. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

hello Eric,
perfect timing! that eye-contact is the heart of this photograph. along with those two legs cutely kept together. wish the wings were in the frame. but not affecting much, i guess.

Hi Eric,
I fully endorse all the accolades above. Those hypnotic eyes are magnificent. Well done.

Hi Eric!
I notice you are a new member on TN, so, first of all, a warm welcome here though you are already ten up!
Your profile suggests you are an avid nature photographer and a gifted one at that!
Coming to your picture of the Osprey, you have captioned it aptly. The eye contact is truly powerful and at 1/1024, the image is frozen into extraordinary clarity.
Looking forward to more of your work.


WOW talk about a stare that could stop one in its tracks..looking RIGHT through you she is! And to think you CAPTURED THIS?! AHhh my favorite..but i am sure you will change this for me with your next upload :0)

great action shot - seems as he really is going to get on you!
