This is an image with a peculiar story. This guy was quietly perched on the pole but was inside deep vegetation. Tall grass was coming in between the lens and the subject. I was in a boat and was trying to approach the bird. But the fear of the bird discovering me and flying away made me creep on the mud so that I might remain unnoticed by him for as long as possible. And in an attempt to do so, he eventually discovered me and flew away. I murmured " Oh stuff !!! " :-D

Nice image, I really like the background, it is a painterly one.

Unique capture, and I agree that the background looks like a painting.

"Stuff happens!" Nice shot anyway- seems to be common with osprey.

Great capture of the pose and classic projectile poop, Biru! Beautiful background too.
