gone fishing

This is some of the most amazing video I’ve seen in quite awhile….

    • Yes, some of the best stuff comes from the BBC it seems. I thought the video was perfect just the way it was. Cannot begin to imagine how they pulled off the underwater shot.


  1. Any time I see an osprey I am reminded of my dear friend Barb who passed away 1.5 years ago. She was such an avid birder and came out to visit us in Yellowstone with her husband when she was getting very ill. We took her on a tour of the park and my husband set up a spotting scope so she could see an osprey on its nest. We heard this frail little voice tell Terry that she loved him for giving her this experience, while the rest of us were in the background with tears streaming down our faces. Thanks for sharing this Gunta. πŸ™‚


  2. I agree with Animalcouriers – I can barely chew gum and walk, but the osprey could shake its whole body, hang on to the fish, and fly at the same time!


  3. Goodness gracious! What an angler πŸ˜€ The weight of that salmon was enormous, you had the feeling it was touch and go whether the Osprey was going to get in the air. The sequence of it shaking its feather in flight was stunning. Going to share this in facebook if you don’t mind. Thanks for sharing.


  4. Wow, that really is something. Thank you so much for sharing this Gunta. Amazing photography. Was that a salmon the osprey had at the end of the film? Quite a meal given the fish appeared to be bigger than the bird. I was worried the osprey was going to drop it. Fabulous! πŸ™‚


    • I probably should have included the comment that came with the email that brought me this link:
      β€œThis Osprey got 5-6 fish at a time, got a flounder under 3β€² of water, and then made off with what looks to be a 5+ lb. steel head.”
      Steelhead would be a trout, but I have no idea how accurate that is…
