Osprey fishing

BLACK AND WHITE

In my canoe I have paddled down many creeks in our area taking wildlife photos. Osprey (Pandion cristatus) are one of my favourite birds because of the way they fold their wings and just plunge into the water after fish, sometimes even going right under. It is an amazing sight to then see them emerge, water droplets flying everywhere, as they lift off with fish in claw.
