Osprey with it's lunch

Discussion in 'Birds' started by cybertec69, May 17, 2018.

  1. Today the skies cleared up after days of heavy rain, and the weather will get nasty again starting tomorrow, so I decided to go to my local watering hole and see what the birds are up to, and as soon as I got there this is what I found. That fish had seen better days. The bird was about to perch on it's favorite tree when it saw me, did a beeline towards me and then flew off into the horizon, trying to find a quiet place to enjoy it's prize catch. That fish never flew so high:ROFLMAO: .
    D500 and 200-500mm hand held VR was off.

    1. Now that's a bruiser:D
