Spent the morning on the lake with RandyNikonCafe. I got some of my personal best today with the D200 and 70-300mm VR combo. Great light helped...

This one was totally a grabshot. I swung around just in time to see the osprey picking on the heron. Unbelievable. Too bad they were between me and the Sun. The backlighting is cool, and I guess the silouhette is better than nothing.

Great shots all. Don't worry about the backlighting on the last shot - it's awesome. I've seen osprey harrassing vultures in the air several times. It's interesting behavior.

Thanks everyone. It was a once in a liftetime shot I'm sure. I could go back 20 more times and never see an osprey attack a heron. I may crop it differently, but I think I like it in BW.

Beautiful light is quite the understatement and you sure put it to good use. I love them all with #1 being my favorite. Well done!
