Default ~Osprey~

So many osprey here! I've been here just a week now and have over a hundred osprey pix already! I'll post some favorites here and hope others will add to the thread too.

We were driving back from Pine Island and I spotted this bird in a tree, so as usual, I yelled for Roger to stop(!) The tree was back from the road but luckily there was a clear area to drive up closer and get out of the car. I didn't realize til we got closer that the osprey was devouring a fresh catch!

The photo with his catch is a really nice action shot!

There is a fish in his talons. I see it. That is a wonderful pic.

I love the way the osprey is looking straight at your camera, Sage. Excellent photo.

Going out to find more now. Have to turn the suv over to mechanic monday so we'll be without a moon roof for a couple day. Love that thing for shooting thru!

A moon roof! I never even thought about that before. My car is getting to the point of diminishing returns and the one I am considering to replace it has a "moon" roof. It is sort of a silly name for it, I think, but you are so right, Sage! It could make a big difference not having to get out of the car, quietly close the door and creep around to catch a shot before a bird or animal takes off. I was feeling distressed about having to replace the car, but now I am feeling a little more excited about it.
