My wife and I went on a cruise out of Port Canaveral in the fall of 2014. As we were heading toward open ocean, this osprey floated by. He was moving just slightly faster than the ship so it almost seemed like he was hovering overhead. Even though I was at the top of a tall ship, I had to take almost full advantage of my zoom lens and still had to crop out half the photo.
