Osprey in flight with fish - sequence composite

Best viewed BIG! An osprey flies over with a fish on the way to its nest and chicks near Mendocino, California. This is a composite of five shots of the same bird flying over one time. Photographed with a Canon EOS 350D with Canon 70-300 lens at 300mm, 1/500, f8.0, ISO 400.

 

I previously posted a single image, the one in the center of this composite. When I saw some of the composites of ospreys done by some others on Flickr, I decided to try it myself. I got over 40 shots of this flyover, shooting in bursts at 5 frames per second. I chose these five images as the most representative of the sequence.
