Hi Dilshan,
You have caught this Osprey beautifully, really nice positioning in the frame with full wingspan showing, the light through the feathers give the wings a 3D look. Great detail and a tribute to this majestic bird. Best wishes

Hello dear Dilshan,

Excellent action shot of this wonderful bird.
Great timing, focus and light.
Congratulations and TFS

The bird in-flight against a perfect blue sky is simply a gorgeous catch, Dilshan!
Great clarity and perfect focus on the bird.
The sharpness and POv are excellent, and colors are natural.
Well taken!

The bird is well placed in the frame, off centre, & the sharpness & light contrasts are excellent. Good warm cold color contrasts too. Tfs!
