This is the female Osprey leaving the nest with a small fish the male has just delivered. It probably looks strange to see an Osprey in the air with a fish in its beak but I see it all the time. The female takes the fish from the male in her beak and transfers it to her talons in the air on the way to find a place to eat.  Tripod, gimbal, mm 1/2000, f6.3, auto ISO - 1100, +0.3ev, 500 f4E + 1.4III extender, D500.cc

 

I am trying to expand my pp skill and used a new technique in this one. Using the Content aware move tool in PS, I raised the nest closer to the bird to eliminate some empty space in the image. I tried moving the bird but found that I lost some detail around the edges from blending I assume. When I moved the nest the bird stayed sharp.

Very subtle edit.  Amazing how effective little things like that are.

Great photo, John

Thanks Rod. 

 

 I included more of the sequence but did not spend any pp time on them, so sharing the behavior. They won't load in the order I want: 1, 3, 4, 5 above, 6, 2

That strong light and the "big blue" make a very attractive composition.
