Another shot from the same series as my last post.  Taken at the Baytown Nature Center off Bayway Drive in Baytown.

Nice capture of the Osprey with the fish. Most bird photographers live for shot's like this, especially one that's well exposed and sharp. It only gets better if they are flying off with it or fighting another bird for it.

I would suggest cropping in and down from the right, placing it more on the right third and not in the center. Most of us bird photographers have to use center spot focus to get the shot,then crop for a pleasing composition. That's when megapixels count, as well as long glass, to reduce how much we have to crop in.

You can try cropping in from the left to a third, but with the bird looking out of the frame it has a totally different feel to it. It might work, but you usually want that space in front of the bird to look into.

I would like to see the previous post without the Mockingbird, since I like the stare or look of the Osprey in that photo. You can tell from that photo that it has been eating the fish, and creates a dynamic all by itself.
