I love fish tails
4 months ago

I have known about this location to photograph osprey at eye level for a few years now. I never visited until this summer. The osprey nest is at eye level giving a great look at the ospreys. Eye to eye literally. Trees in the background offer a nice green background.

I am close enough to hear the young ospreys hiccupping. One bird likely tried to gulp down too much fish in one try and ended up hiccupping for a minute before it could resume eating more. Ospreys eat the whole fish right down to the tail as shown in this photo I captured.

Taken with the Canon 40D and 500 f4 II lens. Added a 1.4x III for a better close-up. Thanks for looking.
