An Osprey (Pandion halieatus) with it’s freshly caught dinner returns to its nest, located, on a dock in the Indian River, alongside US1 in Valkaria Florida USA. The Osprey are noted for carrying their fish head first to reduce wind resistance while flying. Osprey nests are typically located near waterways allowing easy access to a food supply.

    Larry i remember you telling me about this shot. I think you had taken your wife shopping and you had wandered off photographing. Thats what my memory tell me anyhow lol.

    Pretty memorable shot this one mate, not one you get every day. The birds can’t bring that many fish per day plus you have to catch the shot just right. No wonder you were so excited by it.

  • Your right Andrew this is the shot we talked about.
