"RAINY DAYS & OSPREYS"

Osprey (5 Photos)

 

Well the weather turned from overcast to sleet and then rain into the morning hours.

 

Wasn't expecting to see much in the way of mammal activity (no porcupine in its right mind would venture out during the day in such wet weather) but coming back from a walk along the Bow River, there in a dead tree was this gorgeous osprey with its prize fish. 

 

There were a number of fishermen out fly fishing but unlike those fishermen where it is "catch & release" along this part of the Bow River in Calgary, Alberta, the osprey gets to keep and eat its catch. And what a lovely catch!

Excellent capture!
Oh, what a big fish you have :)
I can't go to this area any more. My blood pressure rises every time I think of the yokels destroying the nest every morning :(
