So this is the shot that I have wanted to take for such a long time. Every day I drive past a nature reserve that is home to a wide variety of birds. There are various signs prohibiting fishing and hunting and I've been dying to catch one of the birds of prey sitting on top of one of the signs. Wildlife photographer Rosa Parini has managed to do that, and I love this shot of an osprey with its catch. Apart from the irony of the bird sitting on a "No Fishing" sign, I really like how Rosa has caught him with its wings wide open, revealing its plumage and its beautiful form.
Rosa is an impressive bird and wildlife photographer, who manages to get the viewer up close and personal with the subjects she photographs. Seriously good. Please use the link above to see the image on 500px and take your time to browse through the rest of her work. I know you'll like what you see.
