Nom Nom Half a Fish

So, as we were out on a cruise ship enjoying our dolphinless dolphin cruise, we came upon an osprey nest, and out flew this osprey with half a fish in his claw!  The sad part is that instead of having a decent distance lens on my camera, I had my 50mm for taking photos of the dolphins who tend to play very close to the boats (when they show up).  So unfortunately, while I did grab a photo of this guy, to make the fish visible, I had to crop severely, and I could have taken this one as an up close and personal shot.  I’m sad about the lack of fine detail do to the distance, but still, I was so amazed to see the half fish in his claws, I just had to post this one up.  So here goes, an osprey who had his dinner interrupted by our cruise.

And just to show how severely cropped that is, here’s the original

  1. You’re right, the focus isn’t perfect, but it’s still a pretty interesting shot. I really like the angle of the osprey in flight, and the fish (or half a fish) it’s carrying makes for an interesting ‘story’ in the image.
