Osprey-Dinner-RDS BIF-Watching

Yesterday I went down to the lake to see if all the Ospreys have headed South for
the winter. I only found two of them.

Where I found the 1st one



Looking over supper



Taking supper home to Mom



On the other side of the lake watching me

Nice Roger. Number three is especially good. I always look forward to and enjoy your post. Where do the Osprey migrate to and have your Hummers moved on yet?

YUP!! the hummers are gone for this year. The Osprey head South for Mexico & South America I am told. I asked one of them earlier in the year and it must of been a stuck up one because I didn't get a answer.

Don, thanks for looking and commenting.

Nice shots Rodger. Our Osprey tend to just hang about here in southside Va.Guess they don't like to pack it in till late as it does not get cold here to speak of.
Nice shooting .

Very nice series, Roger, #3 and #4 are very good. I still have a few hummers coming to the feeder. Think I will take it in at the end of the month.

I gotta say, that last shot is a great photo.
Very good detail and exposure.

As for the bird, well.. I wouldn't want to tangle with him. Those talons are incredible!
