    On vacation, Knowing there would be Osprey on the lake we ski on I knew this would be my chance at some photos. Shooting from the boat prooved to be much tougher than antisipated. I probably should have bumped the iso to 400 for faster shutter.

    D200 300 f/4 + Kenco 1.4, fl 420mm 1/200 @ f5.6 iso 200.

    Well at least you did see one. If I see them here they are typically out of camera range. A higher shutter speed would have been desirable like you mentioned and it might have helped out on the sharpness. That's why we all keep going back, to try and get the perfect image!
