“Thrust Reversers”. Different (side) view of an osprey as she comes back to her nest. This is almost the exact same flight dynamic in the image a few posts back, but from the side. Throw the wings into an almost forward-flap routine to cut down on her forward motion. The blurred wings and pretty-much in focus face is nice too.
They say if you nail the eye…if the subject’s eye is in perfect focus, you pretty much nailed the shot. I like this one. Nice composition, wings look nice, and that eye…sweet!
and you can’t have a 4th of July post without this beautiful bird! This one was out there this morning as soon as I got to the Marina and promptly began to give me a Departure show shortly after I started snappin’ pictures. Nice shots.
And just a second before those big wings grab a big gulp of air.
Happy 4th, y’all!
