Default Teasing Osprey

I am still trying to catch an Osprey diving into the water and coming out with a catch. This one was another tease. Several times it went into dive mode pulling out long before reaching the water.

I'm right there with you Ed. I've sat and watched one hit the water several times but always coming up empty handed. This is the best I've got to date, nothing to write home about he missed.

Indeed an impressive bird - both in the air and on the water. And some impressive photos as well. Hope you soon "catch" one with a successful catch!
