Camera Critters #172

I go to a nearby pond often.  It’s a great place to find dragonflies and damselflies.  However, sometimes I find other critters there…like Osprey.

I haven’t seen any this year so far, but in the past, I have.  And I have even seen them fly off with fish in their talons.

Here’s the Osprey is getting a good grip.

And finally, the trout is secure and off they go to feed.

One of these days, I hope to get a shot of one hitting the water as it grabs a fish.

Nice shots. I like how the fish is turned until it's streamlined for better flight.

Simply MAGnificent!!! We have an osprey on our island that perches in the same area most days...I call him Gilligan [for an old TV program, Gilligan's Island?]

Anyway, your photos are superb.
