Sand and Sea
Newnans Lake Osprey
This photo was taken this afternoon (~5:30 PM). It was an overcast day and much darker than it would have been otherwise.
My apologies for all the noise but circumstances necessitated a high ISO. Even so, a slow shutter speed and wide open lens was was also required.
I just so happened to catch the osprey as it dove into the lake, partially submerging itself as it grasped the carp; then after a brief struggle it took to its wings and much to my surprise flew almost directly at me, settling in an old cypress tree about 55-60 feet almost directly above me. First to go was the carp's head; within a couple minutes the front third of the fish was consumed.
Fair weather is predicted for tomorrow. Anyone want to guess what I plan on doing then?
