Almost Done With Dinner
Yesterday afternoon I spotted this osprey sitting high up in a pine at the edge of the salt marsh. It wasn’t until I got a closer look that I realized he had just about finished his dinner.
The entire front portion of the a fish had been removed and consumed, all that was left was a bit of mid and tail section.
In a blink though, the osprey was off and had taken his leftovers along with him.
A very environmentally conscious bird, not needing any paper or plastic for the leftovers. Beautiful creature.
No waste at all in this birds world. I knew the osprey was going to leave and I really wanted the jump off shot but I looked down at my camera for an instant and naturally that’s when it left.
Beautiful birds and great shots
Thanks very much for looking and yes, the osprey is a cool bird.
Ohhhh… that eye ! Nice shots , Phil !
Thank you utham, glad you like seeing the osprey!
The pose, the detail creates such an amazing photo.
Hey thanks Charlie, glad you enjoyed seeing the osprey having dinner.
Nice punk hairdo in the first shot!
Oh this guy has got it goin on!
His version of the doggybag! Great pictures, Phil!
Always great to have a little take away for later! As long as the eagle doesn’t steal it.
Thanks, much, appreciate it!
Nothing like a bit of sushi-to-go. 🙂 Wonderful shots again, Phil.
The presentation may not be perfect, but it’s made up for in freshness! 🙂
Love that he carries his remaining meal with him when he leaves. Birds of prey are so beautiful! Really enjoyed the sequence.
He left in a hurry too. My plan was to grab a shot of the jump off but I blinked and that was it, he was gone.
Dinner to go!
Kinda makes you wonder if he was eating sushi or just having some other meat tartar.
It does not get more fresh then this! Gotta love the ospreys, they always look so intense.
