The oldest juvenile Osprey flying towards me from the nest, crossing the bridge and river and landing in a dead tree on the other side  that is Dad's favorite perch and now hers as well.

Great shot Karl. Tack on sharp and brilliant head on view to show those intense eyes.
Make your life spectacular!

Great incoming pose, it looks as if the eye is not completely orange anymore.

Brilliant head on approach, captured superbly, Karl! I love the way it clearly shows how the angle of the tail is used to counter balance the wing position as they maneuver!

A very unique image, Karl, certainly different from your other Osprey photographs, but just as fine .
