Acerca del libro
This book covers my first photographic adventure to the Chesapeake Bay area of the USA to photograph the Ospreys. First some background. The osprey is one of the most widespread birds of prey and can be found on every continent except Antarctica. The worldwide population is thought to be about 500,000, with about 105,000 of these in the USA but only about 500 migrate to the UK each year. Under United Kingdom law Ospreys have the highest full legal protection as a listed Schedule 1 species. In the USA they are protected by the “Migratory Bird Treaty Act” which is not as strict as the Law in the UK. Ospreys are thriving and numerous in the Chesapeake Bay area, they live in a very large area of water which is rich in fish and believed to be the only type of prey they eat. Being in the right place at the right time to photograph them actually diving and taking a fish proved elusive on this trip. They nest on the navigational buoys in the Bay, platforms erected for them close to boat docks and jetties and the local forested areas. Consequently the Ospreys on this area have become accustomed to the close proximity of people and water traffic. I hope that previewing this book and seeing the photograph’s of this beautiful bird and other photographs of this part of the world will be an interesting and enjoyable experience. Please be aware that the electronic versions of the book require a suitable size screen to be able to read the text and captions clearly and obtain a better previewing experience.
