An Osprey with a Flounder over the GulfAn Osprey with a Flounder over the Gulf – Nikon D200, handheld, f6.3,  1.750, ISO 160, Nikkor 80-400mm VR at 135mm, natural light, not baited

A simple but fishy post today of an Osprey image taken 5 years ago in Florida. The flounder was large enough that I wondered how the Osprey could be gaining altitude. The Osprey; unlike some human fisherman, didn’t need to brag about his big his catch was and I am just grateful the fish didn’t fall on my head. No wonder Ospreys are called Fish Hawks, right?
