    the osprey first catches the fish then flies off to a place to eat the fish ahh now it has a look to see if its safe to have its meal,remember these ospreys have lightning movements of the head .

    Thank you for the critical comment on the artistic merit , I am a keen contributor to another website www.theporcelainexchange.com and was rather disappointed that people were over looking the subtle nuance of this bird of preys' stare and instead commenting on the smokey/fruity/woody/citrus notes of the whisky.

    I don't think it's the shape and detailing on the osprey that's in question (apart from its philosophical mien) - it's more the fact that the bird has been depicted as treading on a fish while straddling a rock, instead of just flying off and eating it.

    I have this decanter and actually the work is rather well observed. I live in the Highlands and although I have never seen an osprey and pike? like this in reality, the shape of and detailing on the bird is just like the real thing.

    I particularly like the use of "treading on a fish" as if the Osprey was not looking where it was going and just happened to step on the poor fish. Perhaps that is why he is sat so philosophically pondering his good fortune!

    Agreed. I'm no ornithologist, but I'm pretty sure that an osprey would never just sit with its bum on a rock in that ungainly manner. Especially after having just caught a tasty fish. *Standing* on a rock (fishless) ? yes. Flying away with the fish in its claws ? yes. *Sitting* on a rock with one claw on a fish ? not bloody likely.

    It's the fish I feel sorry for, although I'm not too sure how realistic that portrayal is. I reckon an osprey that's just caught a nice fish would just eat it rather than waste time standing on it.

    Ha Ha! I see what you mean by philosophical! That's the most stoic osprey I've ever clapped eyes on...
