An Osprey I happen to come across hunting along the Bow River launches from a branch for some potential fish. I was very lucky to have my camera close to my nose and snapped the picture as the Osprey launched itself into the air,
Bow River (near Calgary), Alberta, Canada

    Way to go on capturing an Osprey taking off into the air from a perch! So nicely framed too and the Osprey stands out so wonderfully against the deep blue sky! Lovely work James! : )

  • Thanks Sandy!

    Great shot, well done. :)) Here in the UK we can watch Ospreys on their nest live via a RSBP webcam.

  • got to love those webcams…you can watch elephants in africa from your desk in moose jaw :)
