Species: Osprey | Location: Hunter River, Australia
We were exploring the Hunter River in Australia by zodiac. While the wind had calmed down a bit, the zodiac had quite a bit of motion. We were heading back to the ship when someone spotted an osprey on shore. We tried to get closer, but waves held us back. Due to the motion and the lower light, I had to increase the ISO. I was able to get a shot just as the osprey took off.

About The Photographer
I'm a world traveler who has been traveling the globe for the past 15 years, visiting places that are being most impacted by global warming. My initial photography interest was in macros of plants and flowers, but once I obtained a longer lens, I became an avid wildlife photographer. I enjoy visiting off-the-beaten-path places and capturing images of the flora and fauna. I also enjoy sharing these images and experiences with others through my web site and personal presentations.
