Osprey

I'M BACK!!! Had an amazing time at Postill Lake which was 5000ft above sea level on top of a mountain. The bird life was amazing and I got some shots that just take my breath away. I was very fortunate to be in the right place at the right time... ok, it was actually me sitting on the stony beach with camera and coffee waiting ... waiting.. waiting.. sigh..

In celebration of my 138th post (I missed the 100th) I'm posting this image of an Osprey flying freely with no constraints. I watched this Osprey fishing on quite a few occasions but kept missing the shot. On this morning, when I got this shot, and the series I'm posting, I finally captured him/her fishing. Unfortunately for the Osprey, he didn't catch a fish but I caught some shots that just blew me away. I hope you enjoy this little series of this Osprey fishing.
