  4. Great capture, Babsje. It also has a huge wingspan. 🙂

    • Many thanks, and you’re right. Oddly, when I see them in person, the size of their wingspan doesn’t register, but when I look at the photos, wow – HUGE wingspan!

  5. Some big talons indeed! Amazing shot!

  6. Really neat photo the way you captured the bird totally and perfectly framed by the snags.

    • Many thanks for your kind words, Deb. I got really lucky with the framing on this one. The osprey took off really quickly over my head ande the tree branches decided to play nicely this time!

  7. Such sharp capture of the sharp talons.
