Very nice close-up of this osprey, sogs. He appears to be giving you a hard look.

Thank you LD!


If YOU like the photo, that's all that matters!

such a great capture! Love these kinds of closeups, as hard as they can be to capture.

Thank you! I'm fortunate I can sit across from my house and watch them whenever I want. They hunt directly above, along the beach all summer.

How does he land?

Step 1: Prepare his paws

Step 2: catch for upside down

Step 3: Oops, a little bit over spun

Very nice series, realairlight! These guys certainly appear to be quite large. I don't think I'd feel comfortable with them flying about.

Beautiful capture, Rob!
