Lovely shots Hans - especially #3 & 4 ! They look a little noisy - obviously these are crops - maybe another run through the noise reduction software could erase it ?

A great series of action shots! Especially nice lighting through the feathers in #1!

Your Tamron 70-300 (a lot like my Sigma 70-300) seems just a little soft at the 300 end. But you are working wonders despite the limitations of the equipment!

I really can't say much except that these are great shots. I have only had the great privilege of seeing an osprey in the wild a few times. As odd as it sounds, I've seen more bald eagles over the years than ospreys.

Thanks guys I appreciate the comments, It's nice being away from home we don't have those birds in Michigan

Frogfish I didn't use any noise reduction what software would you recommend

mole ~ I was just shooting in program I think I will try stopping it down a little more

mtnman ~ I hear there are some bald eagles down here, haven't seen one yet
