An Osprey in flight with a huge FlounderAn Osprey in flight with a huge Flounder – Nikon D200, handheld, f6.3, 1/750, ISO 160, Nikkor 80-400mm VR at 135mm, natural light, not baited

I posted another image of this Osprey and the huge Flounder at the end of November 2013 and today I thought I would share one more photo from that series. This is just 6 frames ahead of the other image I posted. Here the Osprey was further away from Adrian and I and hadn’t yet begun to turn towards the south. This Osprey flying in from the Gulf over the north beach of Fort De Soto came as a surprise to us so I had little time to prepare and get my setting right due to how fast the Osprey was flying.

Funny that I should pick a “Sea Hawk” to post today on Super Bowl Sunday instead of a “Bronco”.  Ah well, I will just have to get to the west desert and photograph some wild broncos.

Go Broncos!
