The Osprey Contortionist, September 26-27, 2017

If you have watched birds for very long, you have probably been amazed at how agile they are.

Pickwick, Tennessee, USA, July 4, 2017
This Osprey, Pandion haliaetus, with his back to the camera was preening his tail feathers. If you look closely you can see his eye at top left.

Amazing to see him twisted around like that, with his head turned around to look over his back!

And here is an Osprey (not the same one) in a more natural looking pose.

Have a wonderful day!

  1. Very beautiful, Ospreys are brilliant birds~

  2. I think they are a wonder of nature. Can't imagine what it must be to fly!!

  3. Predator birds are so awesome to capture and sometimes you have to wonder how they can move like that!

  4. Hello, nice captures of the Osprey! They are always great to see! Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!

  5. Nice shots of the Osprey. Wouldn't it be neat to turn our heads like that.

  6. Good pics! He has no sore back that's for sure!

  7. Yes, they are amazing! How do they do that? They're so fun to watch!
