Osprey - and thanks for all the fish

This afternoon we got a call that an osprey was camped out in a tree above the Boardwalk Cottages, so I headed over there to check it out. Bill and Pat were nice enough to let me hang out in their telescope tower above their home, where I was about 10 feet away from the raptor as he munched away on what looked like a small salmon.

Perhaps best of all was this group of crows that kept divebombing him, probably hoping he would drop his fish so they could have a snack too. Wasn't happenin'

I don't have much background in wildlife pix, and this would most certainly not make it in the Geographic, but all in all, a cool way to spend a half hour.
