Those are spectacular shots, Gary. How do get the vantage point for the eagle shots? It looks like you're standing up in the air with them...

+1 on what everyone else has said. The second osprey picture - well, I don't have words to describe it. I can't stop looking at it.

Congrats on 20k. I'm still working on 100.

Fantastic shots, Gary. The opsrey shots literally pop out of the screen. A little bit of contrast or just skilled shooting? We can only imagine.
