Wildlife Photo: Osprey and Fish

Today, an Osprey taking his fresh fish home got the attention of my Pentax. Here are a series of three shots I snapped while panning the camera handheld using my 250mm lens.

Once they dive into the water and come up with a fish, they turn the fish so it is facing with its head forward.

The Osprey takes its dinner away from where it was caught, usually to some tall pines uphill from the water.

The Osprey uses his talons to turn the fish in a direction where it causes the least wind resistance, sometimes holding it close to his body. This makes my job a little harder. I'm trying to catch the light in both the Fish's and Osprey's eyes. Stand by for more, later.....

More Okinawa Wildlife photos may be seen in my website GALLERY.
