Took this one near Naples FL. It has not been cropped. Nothing like an eye full of Osprey. Note the fish in the talons.

Love the wing spread on this one... and the (comparatively) itty bitty fish.

Wow, not cropped? Wonderful!

I can't wait to get back to the coast and try for my first osprey shots! Keep 'em coming!

Since I saw your other thread wanting more C&C...

This is a great shot. Wingspan is great. If you want to improve this shot in the future, watch how close your subject is to the edge of the frame. The left wing is perfect. The right wing is just a little bit too close to the top of the frame. The good news is, you can easily fix this. Just make the canvas a little larger and clone some more sky in at the top of the frame.
