The Osprey Has Landed

This gallery contains 2 photos. This is the first time I’ve had the opportunity to photograph an osprey. Here it is, sitting in the highest tree at VanDusen Botanical Garden above the manmade pond (which contains koi). We heard the cry and saw the overhead approach of this fish eagle before it landed.

It sat there for a good 10 minutes before flying off to more productive fishing grounds. Even the blue heron wasn’t spotted at the main pond. Photographed at the VanDusen Botanical Garden.
