Caught at Blue Cypress Lake, in Florida, where hundreds of Ospreys reside and mate. One needs a charter boat to get there.
The osprey (Pandion haliaetus), sometimes known as the sea hawk, fish eagle, river hawk or fish hawk, is a diurnal, fish-eating bird of prey. It is a large raptor, reaching more than 60 cm (24 in) in length and 180 cm (71 in) across the wings. It is brown on the upperparts and predominantly greyish on the head and underparts.
For this shot, I used my Canon 400mm Lens, 1/2500 sec at f/5.6 with ISO 1000
In French it’s called ” Escalier en colimaçon.” Fascinating?
