Your best shots: How I took this Osprey photo

12

March

Osprey

Loyce Hood
of St. Petersburg reveals how she captured this osprey photo at John Chestnut Park in Palm Harbor:

He's fairly young and seemed unafraid of me. It's unusual for an Osprey to sit still for photos; especially when I was so close to him.

This image was shot with my favorite lens, a Canon 55-250mm IS lens. Because I was shooting up toward the sky I set the exposure compensation to +1 stop so I could keep detail in his feathers.

Like the picture? Give it a thumbs up!
