What does the man in the moon do when his hair gets too long?
Interesting Fact: Ospreys hunt by diving to the water’s surface from some 30 to 100 feet (9 to 30 meters) up. They have gripping pads on their feet to help them pluck fish from the water with their curved claws and carry them for great distances. In flight, ospreys will orient the fish headfirst to ease wind resistance. ( https://www.nationalgeographic.com/animals/birds/o/osprey/ )
Is this at Heckscher? My daughter and I took pics of this bird but couldn’t figure out what it was. I wonder if you were the photographer I ran by?
I am not sure, I was just driving by and got out of the car and snap few photos. I know it is near Locust Valley.
Then, no, this is a different Osprey. (You can’t just drive by) But thank you for letting me know what type of bird. Love your pics!
Thank You for enjoying my work

I enjoy your work so far – only started looking yesterday – and this is an excellent example of how you add observations, insight and interesting facts to produce something much more valuable than a well-taken photograph.
Thank You, I am so happy you enjoy my work. Thank You again
Really love the composition in this!
Thank You very much
Thanks for posting this photo. We have an osprey nest across from our house in SC, but can’t ever see them this well, even with binoculars. They fascinate me nonetheless!
Thank you I am glad you like it. It is fun to observe osprey they are very interesting.
I love your pics & the fun fact sniglets at the end. Delightful! 🙂 ❤ ❤ ❤
Thank you very much I am truly happy you enjoy my work. 🙂
Osprey have a unique adaptation in that one of their claws switches from forward to rear-facing when grappling pray. It also makes it very hard for then to let go if they ind they have grabbed too much fish. Every meal is a near-death experience for them.
Thank you very much, for stopping by and sharing this information with us. Super interesting. Happy Blogging! 🙂
That’s a nice picture. I guess since I’m Ospreyshire, I am compelled to comment on the bird that shares my musical/blogging moniker.
That is super cool and thank you very much for that. I really appreciate you stopping by and Happy Blogging! 🙂
Another cool photo. Thanks for the interesting facts about Ospreys. I never knew that they were fishermen. 👍
You are very welcome, I am glad to share this information with you. Thank you very much for stopping by and Happy Blogging! 🙂
