This is the same Osprey I photographed and featured on the blog a few months ago under the title “Osprey Hovering In Flight“. It was much closer when I took this picture, revealing much more detail. Please click the image to see a larger version of it.
Osprey’s are one of many fishing birds that will hover in mid-air when they see a potential meal. To stop themselves they push their wings forward which creates the dramatic shape displayed here.
If you click on the image, above, you can see a larger version of the photo, which shows more detail.
This young Osprey, perched high upon a cell tower, took notice of me watching it.
