This was taken on a moving boat, so there was no opportunity for better composition.  If you look carefully there's some red meat at the osprey's feet being fed to the juvenile.

Not an unusual species, but I enjoyed squatting on the ground as it hopped around some low vegetation.  Thanks to Peter May for the correct identification!
