Certainly a favourite bird of mine. Love this action John.
@papajohn replied: Thanks Jenny. I could watch ospreys all day long and this spot gave me lots of opportunity to do just that and get some great photos too. I got really lucky on a recent trip to Florida and stumbled on a very quiet little lake where there was not just this guy, but as many as five ospreys that would fly in about 15-20 feet from shore, spend 20-30 minutes bathing and cooling off, fly off, and then return again in another 20-30 minutes. I would just park my car as close to the shoreline as I could get when there were none there and then just wait and shoot right out my window. While they seemed aware of me, they didn't seem spooked and so I got hundreds of shots. In fact, I went back to that same spot on two other mornings and they showed up both times. Quite a show!!
