I'm about to turn into an osprey with all the osprey photos I've been submitting. But I can get fairly close to them and they fly over me frequently, so they are pretty photogenic ;-) And as my buddy 21.gif steefmcbeef said about my last osprey photo, "I mean come on, he's got a stick."
This was on my first shoot with my new 400mm f/5.6 L. I love it. Enough said.

Thanks for all the comments and votes! It's been a long week clicking the update button. My new PB and first ribbon :)

Great wing position and beautifully clear eye. The stick adds nicely to balancing the composition.

Nice, crisp. Great photo for this, showing the bird in all its glory. Crop, exposure, composition, capture are all spot on with this image and the image would score well in any relevant challange. A really good capture.
The poster is well constructed and well put together. A really good submission..........
