    Yeah I agree, closer or not these images have impact. Infact I actually like having a little distance there to help with scale and impact.

    Mind you that fish may have a different opinion lol.

    Thank you for the replies guys.

    Osprey sure are magnificent birds, sure enjoyed watching it soar. Still would have loved to have gotten up close and personal with him.

    JTH he is about an hours drive away from me. I hear there is a bald Eagle there abouts also.

    Hi John, great shots! I am amazed you still have osprey around, I thought they would all be heading south by now.

    I asked a couple of people from around here, they were not sure, but they didn't think the osprey migrated. It does not get very cold here (unlike northern Ontario) and the water is moving and open all winter. I think I will need to find a birder to find out for sure.

    Damned good shots. I was expecting to see photos of helicopters when I clicked the link... I guess I spent too much time in uniform.
