Osprey On The Wing

I usually see an Osprey or two when I go to Loch Raven Reservoir, but these two shots are probably the best Osprey photos I’ve taken so far.

For those of you familiar with Loch Raven, I was below the second dam on the river bank when I shot these.

I heard him calling, and spotted him perched in a tree on the opposite bank. Before I could get a shot of him perched, he launched and flew right past me. I was lucky not to bungle the focus, and got pretty good resolution of his beautiful orange eyes.
