Great capture. I think the sky is a little oversaturated, but apart from that it is stunning.

i actually didnt add any saturation to this photo because the sky was already so blue

Amazing shot! too bad U sign yourself in the very middle, it would make a lovely desktop wallpaper...
How about signing yourself somewhere in the corner? It would be easier to admire the picture :)

Very impressive. I love Ospreys. I once saw 4 of them around this one dead tree, but none of my photos turned out even nearly as impressive as this XD

I absolutely adore this shot. The colours are SO vibrant, and the position is killer, it's so unusual and interesting, almost to the point of looking stylized. I really like that. Also, the stick in her talons (for her nest!) is a nice little addition, and the eye contact she's giving the camera is awesome.

Oh wow! The clarity of this photo is just mind-boggling! You can sort of see how it's reversed that outer toe to get a better grip on the stick. Composition is excellent.

is this, or is this not, the same bird that you captured attacking some poor poor people at the command of a wizard and being fought off by a gaggle of pirates? in moab? hmmm.

awesome pic!
I have some pics of wild birds in my gallery as well, but that was at a show. I guess you have photographed this in nature and it was a free bird.

I think this is one of the best if not the best pics of a bird I have seen on DA
