The Osprey Hawk has been returning to Pennsylvania since we've been cleaning up our waters. I have been after this hawk all summer and all attempts had failed. During my last week of camp I spotted him at the river right alongside my camp. I took about 50 shots of him in flight and then he flew into a set of trees, I could not see him and I was going to leave, then I said to myself I waited to long for this and I sat by the rivers edge and waited. After all this Hawk had come to me. After about 5 minutes out of the trees he came and dived right into the river and came up with the brown trout. Worth waiting for?????

I would say it was worth the wait. Great to be able to capture that!

I too would say it was worth the wait. You don't get these kind of shots every day. Good work.

That's very interesting - I bet he was playing with you and then decided to show off!
