Just got to the Everglades today. Have a very weak internet connection at the house so just going to put up these two shots from earlier today. This was with the 300f4 and TC1.4.

Very nice shots. Never saw an Osprey with a sailcatfish before. Looks like a painful meal. Can you zoom the original and see if the fishes spine is in the birds leg?

Thanks everyone! John, I zoomed in and yikes! The spine is in its leg. I was wondering what caused all the blood on the bird. Here's a close-up.
