I photographed this Osprey at the Baytown Nature Center this morning using my Olympus EP-1, Sigma 50-500, and flash with extender. I photograph Osprey at lot at the nature center but I really like this shot.
I entered this shot in the "open" category of December's of the Bay Area Photo Club's "Honor's Night" program and received a silver award from the judges. This show was taken at my wife's 2014 family reunion in Sweeny, TX. and it just struck me a as a slice of Americana.
I work in the industrial distribution sector as a salesman for a master distributor of valves and fittings in Houston, TX. I am a member of the Bay Area Photo Club which meets at the Art Alliance Center at Clear Lake in Clear Lake Texas on Tuesday nights. I shoot with an Olympus E-3 and my favorite lens in my Zuiko 12-60.
