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.
An osprey shakes off some water as he flies along the reeds at the edge of the marsh.
He caught no fish on this attempt but will go right back to work after the quick shake off.
Of course the eagle is sitting in his tree at the far edge hoping the next pass by the osprey will be successful…
Such great contrast, beautiful picture of a favourite!
Thanks Maggie, always fun to see these birds in action!
I never really knew how beautiful various birds were until you came along with your spectacular photos!
Well thanks a bunch! I never realized some of the cool things they do until I got involved in photographing them.
Better then when I used to take people pics, the birds don’t give me a hard time about how they look and of course the alligators prefer that I made them look fat.
Stunning captures. 😀
Thanks very much for looking and commenting!
Amazingly sharp images, Phil. 🙂
The ospreys are great because they can make pretty much any picture look good. Thanks Sylvia! 🙂
Wonderful, wonderful captures! I love those stretched wings and the water spray behind the bird 🙂
Thank you so much and I’m glad you spotted the water dropping off behind the bird. I liked that too.
It really adds to the story 🙂
I miss them and look forward to their return to the bay. Thanks for the views.
We had them all over the place for a while but then they kind of dropped off and went back to mostly fishing out over the ocean. Of course the always lurking bald eagle doesn’t make the ospreys feel any better about fishing in the marsh.
Love his focused look. These birds of prey are just stunning creatures.
They really are amazing birds and hard workers too! A shame how sometimes the eagle gets their fish.
The alligators prefer looking fat? How charming.
Well sure, in their world size is everything so the bigger the better. 🙂
