This osprey had landed in the marsh muck getting grass for the nest. He came around and set up for a low altitude run coming at me but the wind picked up a bit and he aborted. A few minutes later, he set up again, but this time going away. He dragged his feet thru the water for a good 40 feet and they came out nice and clean.

Not the best shot, but pretty good for heavy overcast with light rain.

Thanks everyone, it works for fish blood, scales and other crud. Kinda like a power wash! Their forward speed is up there, they usually do a rather steep approach that almost looks the start of a dive but flare out at the last second and drop the gear. The dive gives them speed which bleeds off quickly when the feet start dragging in the water.
