It was taken at Tift Nature Preserve, Buffalo NY USA. There are actually two birds on the platform and I think they were eating a large fish. It was very windy which allowed the other bird to hover before actually landing.
"hard to believe you got that shot w. a powershot camera."
Its not the camera that catches the shot. It is the person. 1/2 gear, 1/2 person and 1/2 post editing. Not necessarily in that order or percentage.
