Just Because You Miss Doesn’t Mean You Quit

A few days ago I saw this osprey hit the water in the marsh pond but when it came up I saw it missed the fish on this attempt. But that osprey was not to be deterred, it did one tight loop around and was quickly right back at it hovering above the water searching for the next opportunity.

    • I really have to give the osprey credit when it does catch a nice fish and an eagle steals but the osprey goes right back to work. Hopefully for them, disappointment and despair are not natural instincts.

  1. Those eyes! So focused. Great detail showing the bird’s intent. I’m glad I was not a fish that day. 2nd photo reminds me of the Osprey hovering aircraft.

    • He really does have some intense eyes. Good for him though, he needs to spot those fish. Although he did not catch a fish on this attempt, he came up with two fish on one other dive. Shots of that upcoming… 🙂

  2. I hope that evil eye deterred the eagle from stealing any catch (doubtful, I suspect)! You’d think the Osprey might figure out some deterrence for the thieving eagle.
