A Fish Fight

We finally have sun today! It’s so nice to see blue skies again.
But it did get chilly again too. I don’t mind as long as there is sun.

It was cloudy the day when I went to the dock with my husband. He did a little fishing and I brought my camera. I was hoping to get some shots of the osprey that hang out down there. I had actually forgotten about these pictures until I saw this shot of an eagle on Michelle’s blog.

Isn’t that a great shot? She has a whole lot more photos of these magnificent creatures. Michelle took these shots at Lake Michigan. It looks like a gorgeous area.

After looking at her wonderful shots, I remembered about the day we went to the dock. 
I had to wait a bit but then I saw this.

I had just put on my new lens and I was fumbling trying to get this shot!
I was so excited to get it and then I realized that the osprey had company.

It was amazing to watch.

We had heard there were eagle nests nearby but we had not seen any in awhile.
There was the one we saw last year in the neighbors yard eating something. 
That was freaky because he swooped by so close to us!

The osprey drops the fish but I don’t know if the eagle got it!
I just kept snapping away hoping I captured something.

I’m glad he found this fishing spot. I’ll be back for more pictures on a warmer and sunnier day.

The sun did start to come out just before we left.

The osprey was off to find some more supper.

Hope you stop by Emerald Cove and see her great shots too.

Have a great week.


  1. How amazing to be there and see that! Great photos, my friend! I made a little announcement today...I hope you can stop by to see soon! ♥

  2. Wow, what great shots. I always put my camera away at the wrong time. I had a huge sting Ray beach himself in front of me but by the time I got my camera out he was gone. There has to be a way to enjoy the day & get the shot :D Hope all is well with you & yours.

  3. OHMYGOSH Anita, these are beautiful and amazing!!! How cool that you got to see it and photograph them!! Your shots are incredible!! We don't have osprey here or at least I don't think so. Thank you so much for sharing them, my kids and I just loved them!!

  4. What amazing photos, Anita!!! I love watching the Eagles swoop down over the canal and grab a fish right in front of our dock.
    Thank you for sharing your pictures with us.

  5. Beautiful pictures...so amazing to see!

  6. What's that green stuff? Grass? I can't remember what it looks like as I only have white stuff as far as you can see.

  7. Wow! How fun was that to watch? Great shots, Anita!

  8. Wow, great shots! Your photos tell quite the story. Good thing you brought your camera.


  9. Wow, Anita!
    I did a double take on the photo with the fish in the birds talons. So great.
    So was the reminder of the song, I'm humming it now, waiting for summer...

  10. Your photos are amazing, Anita. A nice day spent with your hubby and a great picture taking day. Hope you have a wonderful week!

  11. Yes, amazing, Anita. How lucky you were to be there to see that! Thank you for sharing with us.

  12. Amazing shots Anita..and a happy outing it looks like!

  13. Fabulous pictures, Anita.

    We have an eagle that stops by our lake every few days. He's so regal, he takes my breath away every time I see him. One day, we watched him circle the lake endlessly. We knew he was out to get something. And then he swooped down and attacked a bunch of ducks. He injured one of the babies. It was so sad. The ducks moved away from the baby, because they were so freaked out and the duckling pitifully tried to escape, but it was clear the eagle had hurt it. It took a couple more swoops for the eagle to pick that baby up and carry it away. It was awful but I couldn't look away. Wild America right in my backyard.

  14. I love the collage!

    There's something about nature pictures that is so mesmerizing.

  15. Anita, those are wonderful photos of those grand birds. Are you familiar with the website of the eagles in Decorah, Iowa? It's is a live feed and you can watch the nest. There are two eggs so far.



Thanks for stopping by today. I love hearing from you.
