Osprey at Larnaca salt lake

I was very lucky to capture this image of a resting Osprey at Larnaca Salt lake on my recent visit to Cyprus. The lake is a fantastic site between November and March when it has water and is full with Greater Flamingos. As these images show there was no water there when I visited and I was driving past the lake at about 8 am  having had a luckless early morning start trying to capture images at Larnaca sewage works. Whilst driving past the salt lake out of the corner of my eye I saw an Osprey sitting on a post and managed to get close enough to get some images. I used my new 2x nikon teleconverter on my 300mm 2.8f lense and fairly pleased with the results.
