Osprey (Pandion haliaetus): The fantastic fish hunting Ospreys : photographed at Aviemore Scotland. The ospreys hunt in the really early morning from around 4:30 AM . Light is at a premium so camera settings are on high shutter speeds, wide apertures and high ISO settings! From August 2017 I am running photography tuition days with the ospreys. Managing your camera settings and helping you get te best shots with these fast moving beautiful birds of prey from the perfect location in Aviemore Scotland.
Contact me here: for more information on photography tuition days . Currently running til 11th August 2017:

After catching their prey the ospreys often take a fly round the pool before carrying the fish away to eat.
A misty morning catch.
Early morning take away.
As the light lifts in the morning the opportunities for a sharper image improve.
Away with a fish supper!
