Osprey catching fish

August 4th, 2014

The sequence of images posted are of a male osprey catching a 0.75kg trout. The bird weighs about 1.4kgs and hence he struggled to get out of the water and fly with such a large fish. This bird regularly fishes at 9 o’clock in the evening when it is almost dark making photography more difficult in the low light at this time of year. These images were taken at ISO 5000 f2.8 at a speed of 800 with a 300mm lens.
