Default Look at my fishhooks

Here is a Picture of a young Osprey taking a rest from fishing on a lightpole. He is hollering at another Osprey flying over. Taken with a Nikon 5700 witj a Oly B-300, I was resting the camera on the side window of my car. He posed for quite a while (took about 30 pics) and was still there when I left. Great opportunity..

They sure love perching on poles, don't they. What a great shot. Obviously, he was determined not to lose his look out post.

Thanks Janet, This Osprey (or a nest mate) has been Perching on this post almost every day for the last week or so. He obviously has been kicked out of the nest , and has not quite got the hang of catching the fish in the lake. He is most likely resting after flying so much. He (or she ) was soaking wet the other day from fishing. Fun to watch them hovering and fold thier wings and dive for the fish. they fly out of the water fluttering thier wings to dry off.
Thanks for the compliments. :lol:
Herb

You are so lucky to have them around to observe. Which state do you live in. Florida by any chance?
