Artist's Description

This male Osprey was coming into land with his body taut, his wings spread high and his magnificent talons well and truly spread. Osprey have large feet with huge talons (for catching and holding fish) so they will always perch on a clear branch, tree trunk or pole … anywhere they can balance.
They have relatively long legs for a raptor, spiny footpads called spicules, long, sharp, curved claws, and a reversible outer toe to aid in gripping slippery fish.
Canon 50D, EF70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM
