High Key Osprey with Catch

High Key Osprey with Catch

As a prize for one of my photos being recognized in a local photo contest, I was given access to the Dairy Unit of the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge for a day.  A short drive back into the unit stands a tower built for Ospeys to nest on.  This is a shot of a parent bringing food to its young on a bright overcast day.  Note that the bird has already disposed of the fish’s head.  Taken with a Canon 40D, 1/1600, f7.1, 340mm, ISO400, +2EV, Canon 100-400mmL lens.
