Osprey

Aviemore, Scotland. Ospreys Leave the Highlands of Scotland and migrate back to Africa towards the end of August. I had been waking up at 4am every day for 5 days walking to the pond where they fish and waiting patiently in a cold and humid hide for them to show up. It was my last morning when an osprey dove caught a trout and flew straight at me. It was an incredible moment as the bird looked straight in my direction as he lifted his prey.
