Osprey

FullSizeRender.jpg

I was really excited when I saw this Osprey flying at Kiser Lake. Their diet is 100% fish, so I should not have been so surprised. When we fist saw her, I thought it was a hawk, but as we watched, and I capture this photo, I could tell we were looking at something different. I have only photographed one other Osprey prior to this photo. Very cool.

Brave Hawk or Napping Eagles

I photographed this hawk a couple of days ago while she was hunting over a large open field. There is nothing unusual about this photo, other than the fact that this hawk was hunting about 50 feet from an eagles nest. The last photo is the nest. Clearly, the eagles were not here, but they sound be soon. Brave hawk or napping eagles ...

And if you are still reading .... I had some good news yesterday. I had my bi-annual PSA test, and I am still cancer free. Made my day!

Look up!

Earlier this week, we were out driving around while looking for birds to photograph. We had stopped at Garbry Big Woods but had not seen anything so I was ready to head towards home. Teresa starts pointing towards the sky ... I didn’t see anything at first, but then I saw this beautiful hawk flying overhead. I managed to capture her in this photography. I was at a perfect angle and she was at the right spot for an amazing photograph. I really like this photo.

Bird of prey

FullSizeRender.jpg

We were back outdoors taking photos yesterday. The temperature had climbed to double digits (barely) so it was time. We saw this hawk at least three times, but on the third time, I was finally in a position to capture a decent photo.

I was driving east when I saw her fly across the road in front of me. This was a country road and luck for us, no cars in sight. I pulled forward and looked to the south and there she was .. about 50 feet from me. She turned her head to face me, then just slowly rotated it back toward the south. I snapped off about 10 pictures, then just watched her until she flew away. We didn’t stick around since it was evident she was hunting and I didn’t want to disturb this beautiful creature.

Empty nesters

Now that the trees are bare, you can see all of the vacated bird nests. This one is special. This is the nest of a pair of Bald Eagles. They usually return and use the same nest each year, so I expect to see them soon. I have seen eagles here recently, so I expect them to come back to nest. Last year they brought us two beautiful, new eaglets. Nature at its best.
