    Very impressive capture! I love the pose you’ve caught him in. Wonderful image, the timing and clarity is great!

    I wonder if you could take a moment and have a look at this I am having so much trouble getting a positive ID on it – initially I thought it was an Osprey and now I’m not sure at all. Would love to hear you opinion!

    Again, what a beautiful shot – you should be really proud of this!

  • I Looked at your image. With the colour tone of the image and no scale reference points to identify its size, it is difficult to tell. Based on the overall shape and proportion of the head and body with the tail feathers, it does not appear to be an osprey, or at least not compared to the ones I have seen in the Ottawa On area. Nice image none the less!
