Well At Least He Took Care Of ‘Business’ First

Earlier this week I saw an osprey approaching from out over the salt marsh. He was flying fairly straight until I noticed a sort of brief pause and it seemed like he pulled up for a second.

Quickly I realized he was doing a mid air lightening of the load. But I’m happy the osprey did that prior to flying directly over my head which is just what he did seconds later!

  1. I was returning to Clemson years ago and noticed a large bird flying high over the highway. Suddenly, it did the same thing and I watched in horror as the “string” came right at me and hit the middle of the windshield. Trust me, you do not want to have one bomb you.

  2. Ha, ha. Having been “hit” before, definitely something to stay away from. I LOVE that last capture. Amazing shot, and the detail and patterning underwing is fabulous.

    • If he would have held up a couple seconds then purposely targeted me I just might have taken that personally.
      The gull that aimed right for the sunroof on a car my wife was driving I think deserves some particular blame however. 🙂
