Editors choice for Bird Photo Of The Week in the
World As We See It, or as we missed it Group April 16th-22nd, 2012

,,,,at least it appears to be, but in fact this Osprey ((Pandion haliaetus)) was just landing to make an unsuccessful attempt to catch a fish from the lake and, within a split second, was gaining momentum to get airborne. Ospreys have vision that is well adapted to detecting fish underwater from the air with their prey first being sighted when the Osprey is 10–40 metres (32–130 ft) above the water. The bird may hover momentarily and then plunges feet first. Obviously timing was slightly off on this occasion!

Photographed at Buttertubs Marsh, Nanaimo, Vancouver Island, BC, Canada.
