Osprey at Eastern Neck NWR

Female Osprey sitting on a branch overlooking one of the coves at the Eastern Neck National Wildlife Refuge on Maryland's Eastern Shore. 

I shot this on 4-16-2013 with the Nikon D7000 and Sigma 50-500mm lens @ 500mm.  Aperture priority mode, F8, ISO 200, spot metering.  Handheld while sitting in my car stopped on the side of the refuge road.
