Drying off.....

By teocali
A wild Osprey (Pandion haliaetus) taken from quite a distance in the Albufera National Park, Mallorca. I watched it for ages while it preened itself and then seemed to 'hang its wings out to dry'. It seemed a very unusual pose.

My thanks to you all for your C&Cs on my last upload, with a special thank you to Ian(youmightlikethis) for his much appreciated UA Smile

Seems like the Bird and the perch have merged into one Sylvia, so very well separated from its surroundings, they do look like an interesting subject but have not been lucky enough to see one, an awesome presentation....John

A terrific and unusual capture; perhaps his wings were tired!!
