Return of the Ospreys

It was nice to see ospreys again. Apparently they like to stop here as they migrate south for the winter. They refuel by catching some fish in our community lake. 

I was lucky to get some pictures of one fishing. It circled over the lake until it spotted a target, then swooped down suddenly and splashed in the water. It flew off so quickly that I did not get another picture until it had landed in a tree and then started circling again. 


  1. I love the shots of the bird soaring in the sky

  2. Great captures of the Osprey. It is cool to watch the Osprey dive for a fish! Take care, enjoy your day!

  3. I love watching Ospreys...hope this one caught some breakfast eventually!

  4. My favourite image is the third last image.

    Best regards

  5. I love watching ospreys. How cool you got some photos of one catching a fish!

  6. How amazing to see the ospreys catching fish from your community lake. That would be a rare sighting over here. I'm glad they stopped by so you could take those action photos.

  7. They are gorgeous birds!

    How great to see you at 'My Corner of the World' this week!! Thanks for linking.
