    Very nice composition and view Yan

    Extenders always take some sharpness away but it is acceptable in this photo
    Nice done
    Bro

  • Thx bunch bro, yes in this one it shows more taking into account the distance and the speed of the bird and the light conditions.
    At least, I have one of an osprey. This is my first and hopefully, this summer I get a better one :)
