I haven't been doing bird photography for very long but I think this shot is one of my better ones.

Osprey on Reelfoot Lake in Tennessee. Captured with a Canon 70-200 f/2.8L IS with 1.4 converter on a 20D. I was pleased with this shot considering I was balancing on a swaying pontoon boat.

These are by far the best I have taken to date. Let alone 2008.

I hope to someday have the skill and knowledge of the birders on this site to
control exposure and use lighting properly to obtain the superb shots I have seen time and time again throughout this great forum.

Until such time as I have those skills these will have to do.

Take care all. I should be back home in October. WooHoo!
