15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Osprey Hovering

I was photographing birds at an Alewife (fish) run in Somes Sound, near Acadia National Park, Maine, USA. Osprey and Bald Eagles would soar over head to spot fish. I set up my tripod high with a long telephoto lens and camera, and followed their flight by keeping my tripod head very loose.
