Since combining fishing/boating with photography Ospreys have given me a great many photo-ops. These images were captured during my latest encounter over the weekend.
As I slowly motored into a small cove the Osprey flew from a tree and perched farther back in the cove partially hidden by foliage. Readying the camera I continued my slow approach intent on capturing as many images as possible when it again took to the air.
When the Osprey again took flight I could see that it was clutching prey in it sharp talons. The bird flew to my right then executed a sharp banking right-hand turn passing over my head. This image with strong sidelight was captured during the Osprey’s approach.
