Hungry Osprey

I missed seeing him catch his fish in the small lake at the campground, but watched him up very high in the pine tree, eating it for a long time. I was hoping he'd fly so I could show you the huge wingspread I saw earlier in the morning. The pictures were taken from the far side of the lake and I was so pleased to capture this wondrous bird. Now would have been the time to have a high-quality camera, but I’m very pleased with the results of this lucky opportunity!

This series of 10 is what I picked out of the 37 pictures I took while waiting for him to fly.

  2. Incredible....Ms. should share the link to this post on my bird photo blog at I'd Rather B Birdin' --only if you want to of course.

    Ospreys are a favorite of mine.

  3. Great photos! I love ospreys so much and it's wonderful seeing him with his catch. That crow wants a nibble!

  4. Great! A bird of prey with prey!
