Osprey In-Flight

Osprey

Pandion haliaetus

Sacramento Valley, California

 

This one turned out fairly sharp for a hand-held tracking shot of an in-flight bird. I like this one because it shows the detail of the wing feathers, the stripe behind the eye, the tongue, and the eye itself. You can click on the image to enjoy a larger version.
