PIC OF THE WEEK: 01/16/12 • PREVIOUS WEEKNEXT WEEKALL 2012 PICS

Bird Pic Of The Week

Osprey

(Pandion haliaetus)

Where: Indian River County, FL • Blue Cypress Lake

Notes: At the end of a week of exploring some amazing places in Florida, such as Merritt Island and Viera Wetlands, this half day trip to Blue Cypress Lake punctuated the end of our adventure. Guided by an experienced nature photographer (Ron Beilefield of Whistling Wings Photography www.whistlingwingsphotography.com), we were hopeful for a productive morning. Afterwards it would be time to head northward in order to arrive home before New Years. We had a great morning out on the water. The sky was clear and the sun light was soft yet warm. The birds cooperated as well, Barred Owls and a Peregrine Falcon too! But all too soon the morning hours had melted away and it was time to head back to the boat ramp to load up the boat and gear. This image was captured within the last few minutes as we were approaching the narrow channel that leads back to the dock. This "Fish Hawk" circled past us with a large fish and then landed in a nearby tree. This meant one last time to maneuver the boat around to get us into position for one or two last shots. The fish continued to flop around as if it might be released from the hooked talons of the Osprey, but no such luck. The young Gar Fish really adds to the "story"the photo tells. This encounter seemed almost like a going away present at the time.
