Watching the osprey soar through the sky is a sight to see. The photographer has to be very good to get good pictures of them when they’re flying. Even better is to get a picture of them while they’re hunting.
Chen Chengguang is a Taiwanese photographer who likes to take pictures of birds uniquely. Some of his best work is when he takes pictures of ospreys with his camera lens. They especially like the pictures he took of birds diving for food. They are called chronophotographs, and the pictures are taken over a long period and then put together to make one picture.
Chen’s work is down there. He has a lot of beautiful pictures on his Instagram account, so be sure to check them out.

In Chen’s words, he has been “obsessed” with taking pictures of birds for a long time now. He wants to show the “beautiful parts” of flight. This is why it’s worth it to be a photographer: It makes him feel like he did something. joinus12345 is the person who took this picture.

After an osprey catches a fish, it moves its body so that it doesn’t get blown away by the wind. Indeed, this is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. According to National Geographic, they can live for up to 30 years in the wild. They almost always eat fish flesh. In fact, fish make up almost all of their food. That’s a lot of pescetarianism right there (minus the veggies). joinus12345 is the person who took this picture.
These birds dive to the water’s surface from 30 to 100 feet (9 to 30 meters) in the air. That’s so cool! An osprey flies when it has a fish in its talons, and when it does this, it orients the fish so that it doesn’t get caught in the wind. These birds eat mostly fish in their food. joinus12345 is the person who took this picture.
For their food, these birds tend to live near water. Because they have curved claws and pads on their feet, their prey has little chance of getting away. When an Osprey walks, it has curved claws and pads on its feet that make it easy to catch fish. joinus12345 is the person who took this picture.
There were many ospreys in the U.S. back then, but they were in danger because their natural habitats were polluted with chemicals. Fortunately, they could get over that obstacle and grow their population in some places.
