A cloudy misty morning 8-7-16, went to my favorite local park (River Park North, greenville nc). This was my first outing with a new tc-14e iii, not sure what to expect.
The setup:
nikon d750
1.4 tc
nikon 200-500 f5.6
gimbal head on monopod.

shutter priority @ 1250 because i'm a bit shakey
f8
auto iso

I think this setup has promise

i have wanted to catch one of two ospreys that nest here every year in action for several years. This spot is where i see most of their fishing and feeding.

Luck favors those who are prepared. You obviously were prepared to catch a great action shot. Your "favorite of the year" is the result. Nice photo that truly tells a story of a beautiful bird.
