Thanks, CJ.

This was shot with a 100-300 which actually is a good range. I have also shot some with my 400 and it can sometimes be difficult to keep on the bird. This shot was cropped at least 50%. I suggest you stick with it and try cropping. You might be surprised at what you get.

Great Osprey image Harvey! I tried getting a shot of an Osprey in its nest for the last challenge on "Leading Lines", but all I was able to get was the nest as it flew out of range. :-( I have the Canon 70-300 IS and there's no way I could get this close a shot! Nice sharp image and I like how the pose suits the square. CJ

This is not better than yours... it's just different. Mine is an osprey. LOL

Traveller, at least you're looking. Thanks. I enjoyed yours as well and hope that one day I can catch a hawk in flight. The ospreys around here are fairly available, particularly at nesting time.

Okay, Harvey, you just had to go and post one better than mine, eh? This is spectacular. Best Wishes, Traveller
