Have a look at photos of wildlife, festivals and travel sites here. Sharing tips for travelers with a twist of humor is part the life I enjoy in Okinawa, Japan.

Wildlife Photo: An Osprey with Fish in Flight
Here's another view of an Osprey (Pandion haliaetus) flying with a freshly caught fish.
This photo was taken a few miles from my home in Kin Cho Kin Okinawa, Japan the morning of November 28th 2010.
The camera used was a Pentax K10D and I had a Pentax 12-250mm lens zoomed to a focal lenght of 250mm.
The Ospreys move pretty fast, at times so, the tripod isn't of much use with that short of a lens.
What I do is fold the legs and use the tripod as a monopod and pan the camera while watching for the bird to get in a position to light-up that golden eye.
One of these days, I'll get a shot for you where both the fish's and bird's eyes are lit-up. Later.....
Visit my website and check the Gallery if you'd like to see more OKINAWA WILDLIFE.

Whoa...I'm glad you mentioned the fish...I wouldn't have spotted it.
Yeah, that's a small one. One of these days I'll get a larger sized fish for you.
