Gone Fishing!

F/11.0, 1/500, ISO 125.

Osprey

What did the fish say when he posted bail?

“I’m off the hook!”

Interesting Fact:  The Osprey is the only hawk on the continent that eats almost exclusively live fish. In North America, more than 80 species of live fresh- and saltwater fish account for 99 percent of the Osprey’s diet. Captured fish usually measure about 6–13 inches in length and weigh one-third to two-thirds of a pound. The largest catch on record weighed about 2.5 pounds.  (  https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Osprey/lifehistory )

  1. I saw osprey nesting in Australia: amazing. Didn’t manage one decent photo: yours is cool.

    • Australia, that’s amazing on day I am planning to make my way over there. I am sure you will get one soon enough. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing with us. Happy Blogging! 🙂

  2. We have a large population in central Ontario. They nest on our hydro poles. Sometimes the nest look like they have tree limbs up there.

    • Ontario is amazing place I can see why they are there. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing with us. Happy Blogging! 🙂
