Osprey: Fish Hunter- Sky Watch Friday


patrolling the sky
scanning for fish in water
osprey fish hunter
flutter and hover
seeing fish shadows below
preparing to dive

swift steep plunging dive
plummeting down through the air
hunger is appeased

My many thanks to Tom Wigley for hosting Sky Watch Friday . For other Sky Watch entries please visit Tom's page.
