Osprey In Motion

September 11th, 2015

The osprey’s powerful 5 foot wingspan and the closeness of the bird to the hide, together with the sound of the air moved by the wings creates an unforgettable moment leaving you saying “wow” Here are two Gif files produced from images captured of osprey 01(09) taken at Horn Mill photo hide in Rutland. The faster one shows the true speed of the bird and the sequence of 29 images was captured in 2.8 seconds ! The slowed down version allows us to see how the bird uses its wing movements to get airborne and carrying away its fish.
