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.

    • 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.
