Osprey - cleaning plumage (Pandion haliaetus) - I photographed this osprey in the lagoons of Oristano, Sardinia, on a cloudy day, smoothing his feathers after eating. Nikon D850, Sigma 300-800mm, f / 7.1, 1 / 2000sec, ISO 250. Thanks for your comments

Giangiorgio, how I wish that I had the osprey's neck flexibility. Its posture affords a different perspective on the bird's feathers for the viewer. Of course, its golden eye also draws one into the image. Another example of your ineffable ability to photograph birds in the wild! - - My best always, michael - - - Ciao!

Hi Giangiorgio,


a fantastic shot of this osprey! This is a posture that we don't see so often, and I like it. Beautiful even lighting and background blur. Kind regards, Vincent

Vincent, I took this picture from the window of my car, the passage of cars did not disturb this osprey and I was able to observe him while he was cleaning his plumage, I'm glad you appreciated it , ciao Giangiorgio

Warren many thanks for your visit, you must observe which is the roost where it stops after the flight, and try to photograph it with the sun behind you, I am glad you liked it, ciao Giangiorgio
