Pic of the Day

Osprey, Pandion haliaetus:  Sanibel Island Causeway; Fort Myers, Florida
    While I was photographing Sanderlings on the Sanibel Island Causeway Osprey were soaring over the water looking for their next meal.  This bird flew close enough for a shot, but I had to hand hold the camera as it was attached to my sandpan camera mount.  Fortunately the shutter speed was fast enough to get a sharp image.

Nikon D800, Nikkor 500mm f/4, 1/2500 second @ f/8
