Beautiful capture. Well deserved ribbon too. Wondering why nest building this late in the summer? My guess a bird not quite adult and attempting to try/practice for next year.

Great shot, tells a story, captures the moment, dof pulls the viewer to the bird and nest. Now if you could have only had the ospray look at you with a bit of eye highlight :-)

Guess need to bring a fish next time :-)

Osprey are my favoite birds, and you caught a sweet moment with the wings expanding and the bird working on its nest, great job
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/18/2006 07:37:58 AM
This shot is pretty cool, awesome moment you captured here. Franky, I think this is likely to ribbon in this challenge, however, I "only" gave it a 7. There is something with the backround that throws me a bit off this image, somehow the difference in lighting and the fact that it´s so busy despite being out of focus draws too much of my attention from the bird and the nest. Like I said, still gave this a 7 and wouldn´t be surprised to see this ribbon or at least make top 10, this should do well here.

holy moley!! What a sweeet shot, I tried to get and osprey at yellowstone. Caught one flying back to the nest with a fish. But I was soooo far away that not even 400mm was good enough. 9
