    Airic told me about this osprey awhile back and thought I should visit him soon before he takes off. I was thrilled to see him perched upon a basball diamond light post where a nest was. I started off taking pics of him perched, and it didn't look like he wanted to fly. Just before I went home he blessed me with some flight shots. For the first time witnessing these creatures it was quite the experience!

    Here's a few pics to share...I've got many more but these are the ones that stood out the most to me. Thanx Airic It was well worth the 45minute drive!!!

    The pure blue sky is a perfect background for these shots!

    Very nicely captured. I can't pick a favorite. :thumbsup:

    Hey Joat, I’m glad you were able to take advantage of the spot. I have never been disappointed on any of my visits. You did a magnificent job and I see the lighting was perfect. Excellent captures.
