Trout for dinner - Osprey BIF

Finally the Osprey are back in our area. Murphy's Law got me the 1st day I found them there was snow flurries and overcast skies.

I kept this one because you can tell it is a trout. He was returning from the lake and hadn't stopped to eat the fishes head yet.

BIGMA did OK for the conditions. I am going back this afternoon cause we got some blue skies and see if I can find them again.

Nice....

Got a similar shot here in the past year but not quite so close up... but much bigger fish (not a trout here)

It looked like a little blimp flying under it, a good quarter-third the Osprey's size, and it was working hard staying airborne, until he could find a dining spot.

Thanks Hayward for looking and for commenting. We must be on the same wave length. I was thinking bout one I caught last year working real hard trying to stay up because the fish was to large for him.

My other Osprey tale is at a beach retaurant/bar here they do a lot of of paid semi formal weddings, and there was a telephone pole with a beach light just above the bar and just right of the alter.

So Ospey gets back from raid to top of pole and starts tearing this bigger than top of t-pole fish apart... scales and gut flying some almost falling on the bar, and certainly thrown to the sides flying bits at least in view of those in the front right audience if not actually getting the very front row.

Very amusing post sunset entertainment .

Some pics of that somewhere too.
