[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Portuguese]
The osprey is a large bird of prey from a distance looks black and white. Unlike other raptors, has a silhouette looks "broken", which is due to the angle formed the wings. Viewed from below, the whiteness of the plumage is evident, highlighting the "fist" black.
The upper parts are brownish. The pattern is characteristic of the head due to the presence of a
black mask, which is easily visible when the bird is resting.

This is a fantastic capture, Joao!
The image is sharp and the light is perfect; great pose and nice contrast with a blue sky; splendid eye contact. A beauty!!

Bom dia João!
Aqui temos a grande pesqueira! A pose não é a mais artística mas a nitidez é fantástica bem como as cores e o contraste.Contacto visual a afastar os crentes.Belíssimo exemplar.
Obrigado pela partilha.
Grande abraço
