I have a couple other pics of this Osprey, but I am guessing the one you didn't quite get is always the one that would of been the best.. Kind of like fishing? I was focused on center of lake at 400mm, because that is where I saw him earlier. Then he came over my head from behind, did not even see him until he was eye level and 15 feet from me. I quickly put my eye behind camera and got 5 shots in frame, but this is the one I wanted ..
D500 w/ 200-500 f/5.6
1/3200 sec at 400mm f/6.3 ISO 1800 0 EV
small adjustments to get rid of shadow on wing and sharpening of the eye and beak for better detail then Cropped for presentation ( the top of the wing is the top of pic)
I am going to try later to add to top of pic so tip is not cut off.. Suggestions of how to do that?
The Northern Parula in flight. I have tried and tried to get these tiny birds in flight and this one was very cooperative, staying close and not going behind branches. I got a couple of him catching bugs behind leaves.. He is an excellent hunter!
D500 w/ 70-200 f/2.8
