We we sitting on a boat photographing the several ospreys that were fishing to feed the chicks. There as a slight wind so we knew from which direction they would dive and that made it possible to shoot from the front.

Gorgeous image, Johan. I love the in-your-face angle and the detail and exposure are both excellent.


Wow wonderful image Johan! Terrific head on capture with that intent look. The extended talons are awesome. Very intriguing image.

thanks a lot for your comment. I am happy you liked the image Allen!

Love the idea, the composition, and the glare/those talons. Image quality is lacking a bit for me.

Hi Johan
This photograph captures what a Osprey is all about. A pure hunting machine. The talons and eye contact show how this is going to end with Osprey 1, fish 0. Nice work.
