Default The catch of the day

I was walking by one of the ponds today and as I approached some pine trees by the lake I apparently disturbed an Osprey who was having his lunch. Anyway, he shot out of the tree and flew away, and I quickly grabbed a shot.

As usual, taken with the E-3 and 50-200mm

Thank you James and Jehan. I was happy to get the shot, as I don't have a lot of good Osprey shots, as their nests down here are on very high platforms and are too far away to get good shots.

Thanks Marcelo. Yes, I agree I am lucky; I live near some lakes and wetlands that have a large variety of bird life. I never know what I will find when I go outside. That's why I always try to carry a camera whenever I go for a walk.

Beautiful shot, Steven. You are rapidly developing into a great bird photographer.

Great detail, exposure very sharp.

Outstanding shot, Steven!

Is the green a reflection of the grass it was flying over?

Probably both Ted. Lots of green in the water and grass. Here is a shot taken about 30 seconds before the Osprey from about the same location and you can see how green everything is.
