Nicely done with a feel of the habitat, Greg! Really shows off those huge fish (and nest material) grabbing talons!

Interesting to see the different plumage compared with Ospreys around here, thanks for sharing, Greg.

Very nice image. I'm glad to know that you have this species in Australia. One of my favorites.
