I previously worked as a news and sports photographer. Recently I have been enjoying wildlife photography. My approach toward bird photos is similar to sports photography. I attempt to capture mostly action and hopefully a unique perspective.
This anhinga fishing in the marsh pond yesterday afternoon might look like he’s having a fun time but fishing is serious business.
The fact that anhingas will flip a fish off their sharp bill and catch it head first in mid air is just an added bonus that makes dinner prep a bit more entertaining! :-)
This morning it was grey, overcast, and foggy over at the marsh. Along with the usual assortment of egrets, herons, and wood storks, we also had this osprey circling above the water as it hunted for breakfast.
Ospreys are generally quite skilled at fishing but I never did see this one grab a fresh meal. The last I saw of him he was heading off toward the beach to try his luck in the ocean…
