10 More Photos of the Osprey in Flight

Never Get Tired of Watching These Birds



Another morning was spent at the Okukubi Dam in Kin Town.

Just about every day this week, I took a walk around the dam with a camera.

There are a few of these birds living nearby and, they fly over the dam, occasionally.

When they circle above the water, they are looking for fish.

Catching the sun, lighting-up the bird's eye, can be challenging.

Today, the sun shined and the bird flew through some clear blue skies.

Usually, when one of the ospreys, sees me, it quickly disappears.

They probably don't expect to see old men in pine trees.
