Osprey Series -- "Command Post"

Blue Cypress Lake, Vero Beach, FL

For general interest, the Osprey belongs to a single subfamily (pandioninae) composed of only one wide spread species.  Anatomically it has links to both falcons and the accipitrine family of hawks and eagles.  Its talons are uniquely designed for fishing.

This bird strikes an especially strong pose.  The old bleached tree branch made a great perch from which to scout the lake and several birds in this series were shot here.  The film was Fuji Provia-F (RDP-III); 600mm lens at f-4.0 and 1/250sec. 

Prints are available in sizes up to 16x20.
Edition limit is 30 prints 8x10 and larger.
