Well, at least somebody's on the ball! Good one Kamaly. I think I know the bird and building.
Thanks! You do know the bird and what he's on, but might not be the one you think. It's Mr. Osprey again, at the top of this seaside flag mast (or what ever one would call the fancy mast-like flag poles at boating places!) This quick trip there I knew to expect him here (about 20' from the road), and caaaarefully parked and focused on him, knowing he'd fly. Then another car went by and startled us both, so only a blurry flight shot after all that... I think the female has migrated, so Dad and his boy should be flying south in another week or two.
What a beautiful and impressive bird! Great shot!
Greetings from Germany, Sabine
I envy you everyday more than before. You seen to have a special knack for catching birds. Keep going and good shots. By de way, might you send me a little of your luck . . . just joking.
And what about IKE, it's everything alright? did you got any pics?
Greetings from Spain.
Thanks, Sabine, Oscar, and jean ! It's so cool to have discovered this osprey nest right in a very small congested harbor, with both the nest and the father's favorite perch not far from the road at all - so it's a bit like shooting fish in a barrel to get shots people only dream of having the chance for. Now that I know about it, I think I just may be going to Cape Cod a lot more often next summer!
And Oscar, luckily we were very far from even the remnants of Ike. Even 'Hanna', which was still a tropical storm when it passed nearby, really didn't amount to much at all for us. (Thank goodness for that one - I'd been worried about my new-found ospreys!)
Beautiful shot, his talons are huge.
That would be an excellent place to visit! You are so lucky!!
Thanks, Cal and Jean! Yeah, they sure do have amazing talons, to hold those wiggling fish. I almost named this one 'Time for a Pedicure'! And jean, I have a feeling you'd love it at about any beach! Do you ever go to the shore there?
Truly Kamaly you take some awesome shots. Wonderful how the Osprey can balance on that globe. Such a beautiful bird. Cheers. M
he would get it.steve
I posted your photo.
LOL, thanks, Jean!
And more very very belated Thanks steve and marbiz! This one's favorite perch is a flag mast about 20 feet from the road - so very easy pickin's for photos, as long as you sneak up on him quietly.
Now that precision landing.
Thanks keepclicking! This was a favored perch for him - and a great choice, since it's the top of a flagpole quite near the road. My closest views of ospreys ever! (And so nice to see this photo again after a long time! -Double Thanks!)
