Nice minimalist effect. You are the king of bird shots.

Thanks. I think a larger view like the Flickr lightbox shows this one to better effect. I have lots of documentary shots of Osprey and other birds, but the challenge is to get artful shots. I think this one, through the juxtaposition of the dramatically posed bird (aggressive, raked posture) and its dramatic lighting (body lit, wings in shadow) with the dramatic sky, meets the challenge. A simple composition of elemental power. IMHO!
