Breakfast fit for a raptor!



Yesterday on our first walk along the coast for 2018 I was lucky enough to capture one of a pair of Osprey that have their nest atop the communication tower at Whitfords Nodes. The osprey had had a tres successful fishing trip, look at the size of that fish! It kept looking up and around.. hah! As if anything would try and take it away from it :) They are magnificent hunting birds..bon appétit! Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. Please bear with me as I try to catch up.

  2. Looks like the Osprey has a really tasty New Years dinner there. I prefer mine cleaned and broiled.

    Happy New Year Grace!

  4. These are magnificent shots of osprey in the wild (sort of wild)! We have a number of osprey here but I've not been able to capture any shots as good as these. In the south Florida golf course where I mostly played, we had a large osprey in a tree lining a canal and every once in awhile when we came by it would dive into the canal and bring up a fish. Fun to watch. Wishing for you a wonderful, healthy and very happy New Year!

  5. You captured the osprey at the perfect time, enjoying his dining alone time experience in a most reserved spot. Priceless!
    Have a happy and healthy 2018, Grace.

  6. Beautifully captured and clear enough to show it really is a fish and not someone's pet.

    Well, on one hand. On the other I do feel a little sick now ;-) Am I glad I´m not an osprey.

    A Happy New Year to you. Maybe we can catch up again in about 2 weeks or so, after J goes back to Sydney.

  24. Oh, this bird is so big. Besides, I have read http://getessayeditor.com/about-us/ that it can be very dangerous in some situation.
