Watching the majestic osprey soar through the sky is a sight to behold. It takes a skilled photographer to shoot pictures of them when they’re flying. And an even better artist to get photos of them when they’re in the middle of hunting.

Enter Chen Chengguang, a Taiwanese photographer who takes artistic photos of birds. Some of his best work involves immortalizing ospreys with his camera lens. Especially his chronophotographs where pics of ospreys diving toward their prey are taken in several frames and then composited into one image.

The osprey or more specifically the western osprey — also called sea hawk, river hawk, and fish hawk — is a diurnal, fish-eating bird of prey with a cosmopolitan range. It is a large raptor, reaching more than 60 cm in length and 180 cm across the wings.

European breeders winter in Africa. American and Canadian breeders winter in South America, although some stay in the southernmost U.S. states such as Florida and California. Some ospreys from Florida migrate to South America. Australasian ospreys tend not to migrate. Studies of Swedish ospreys showed that females tend to migrate to Africa earlier than the males.
