Osprey w/fish
Photographer: Charles M Anderson
Location: Bolinas Lagoon, Bolinas, CA
In April 2014 I was driving along the lagoon shoreline and spotted at least five Ospreys fishing. I got this guy shortly after he got out of the water with his fish, while he was shaking off the water vigorously, much like a tern. In the process, he rotated his head 180 degrees upward so it looks almost like he is flying upside down.
