Really nice series, Chris. Ospreys are such magnificent birds, and you captured this one perfectly.

Well caught, Chris. The graceful curve of wing over head in the third is beautiful.

I'm always amazed at how powerful they are!!

They plunge into the water, grab a fish and have enough strength to pull themselves and a large fish up out of the water!

It's not like they can push offlike on solid ground, they are pushing against the water trying to keep them down.

Great shots!!
