PIC OF THE WEEK: 09/03/12 • PREVIOUS WEEKNEXT WEEKALL 2012 PICS

Bird Pic Of The Week

Osprey

(Pandion haliaetus)

Where: Richmond, VA • Richmond City Rookery

Notes: As a youngster I was given a small octavo copy of Audubon's "Birds of America. I think my Mom bought it from a church book sale. I always admired the poses he chose for so many birds, especially the Osprey. What more tells the story of this raptor, formerly known as the Fish Hawk, than it carrying off a freshly caught Shad from the river. The fact that it stopped and hovered for a few minutes, before it dove down and caught that fish, gave me time to adjust my camera settings; so I would have enough speed to capture a flight shot. The Osprey has even turned the fish's head upwind, to make it more aerodynamic. I liked this shot in particular, because of the position and eyes of both the subject and its prey. This bird circled just overhead a couple of times, allowing me the opportunity to get a few extra shots.
