Great set Rick-I especially like the osprey in number two! The BG and light are very pleasing.

Rick, I am greatly impressed with the detail in the landing shot, down to the beads of water on the breast. t. j.

Very nice work Rick and with some dynamic action captured as well! Like each image in the series. Looks like you handled some difficult lighting nicely as well. I need to spend some extra time processing myself!
