This is the same Osprey I photographed and featured on the blog a few months ago under the title “Osprey Hovering In Flight“.  It was much closer when I took this picture, revealing much more detail.  Please click the image to see a larger version of it.


Osprey Hovering In Flight

Osprey’s are one of many fishing birds that will hover in mid-air when they see a potential meal.  To stop themselves they push their wings forward which creates the dramatic shape displayed here.

If you click on the image, above, you can see a larger version of the photo, which shows more detail.

The tower at the Circuit Of The Americas track in Austin, Texas stands 251 feet above the race track.  I didn’t go up the tower but it was pretty impressive to look at from the ground.
