Default Osprey - Barbados

Another series of shots from Barbados. There seems to be a blue glow on the underwings and looking at the raw data it's still there, so I can only think it's a reflection off the sea. It was very bright when I took them. I saw it catch a fish twice but always further down the beach
C&C welcome
Kevin

Brilliant series Kevin. Yes, the aquamarine colour in the undersurface is certainly reflection from sea.

I sure do miss seeing the Ospreys already, they have only been gone a month now.
Thanks for posting up some spectacular shots of one of my favorite birds.
