That's off the charts Steve. I know how hard it is to nail this shot and you really knocked it out of the park. Congrats on this one!

Thanks Mike. I'm not going to pretend that luck didn't play a part. :)

Thanks Al, it was a fun morning. Now today was different. 30 degrees and not a single Osprey.

Thanks Bob. It did catch the fish but turned to its left when exiting so nothing but tail.

I think it's perfect. Rare not to be able find some aspect of a photo that could be improved.
