Coming in for a landing! by laurieewilson

Coming in for a landing!

I went out shooting this afternoon, and was beginning to think I was not going to see anything. Then, I heard some Acorn Woodpeckers all upset about something, and low and behold, an Osprey had flown up and was perched on the top of their tree. Well, I watched it for some time, taking lots of photos of course, and above was my favorite. I hoped to get a shot of it getting a fish, but three kayaks full of people came by and decided to stay right in the place the Osprey had been hunting. Ever happen to you? I know it has....silly question!
Marvellous shot. His tallons are quite something, fav
