Additional photos of the same above Osprey are posted on my picasaweb. A different Osprey is also documented there.
Technical: Canon 20D, 100-400mm IS, 1/160,
f/13.0 aperture priority, ISO 400, handheld.
This image has been somewhat manipulated in Photoshop - the most dramatic
modification is the use of a
cloning tool to remove many unwanted branches and to expose the sky through the
Osprey's open beak.
