Osprey Misses Lunch

Osprey with a missed opportunity at Lake Artemesia. The same osprey was hovering when I arrived at the lake. I learned from another birder a few weeks back that they will hover before they dive down into water for meals. I patiently waited two times. The first time it did get a fish. This time it came up empty-handed.

I shoot birds of prey at a high shutter speed now (minimum 1/1000th or 1/1600th) as they move very fast.

Lens - Tamron 100-400mm f/4.5-6.3 Di VC USD @ 400m on Nikon D5500
