Osprey Wings: My Favorite Photo Of 2020

Posted by

Picking a favorite for the year is always a challenging decision. I chose this photo of the osprey for a couple of reasons.
There is emotional investment. For years I tried to find a place where the osprey consistently would dive in one place for fish. Finally in 2020 I found a place.
It is different then the usual osprey photo. The common photo of an osprey is with a fish within its talons. This photo has no fish in the talons.
Finally, I like the body and wing position.
This is why it is one of my 2020 favorites.

NIKON D500 1/2500 second F/6.3 ISO 1250 300 mm (35mm equiv.)
