A family of ospreys have moved into the neighborhood this year, not far from where I live.
Yet they do, and I’ve been watching this pair for weeks now.
There also seem to be tiny sparrows that have either built their nests beneath the ospreys… or perhaps simply use the nest as a convenient supply house for nesting materials. 😉
But her mate was perched on a phone pole just yards away.
Looking to his Lady Fair back on the nest, ever watchful.
Sharing in every aspect of raising their babies, they face the world together.
I’ll never forget the first time I opened a photo of one of these new neighbors, and saw an osprey staring right back at me. I nearly fell off my chair! It sure made me understand what some tiny fish must feel like when one of these “fish hawks” sets their sights on them! 😉
On a whim, I decided to see if a photo would work, right from where I stood.
And was nicely surprised by the effect!
Happy Memorial Day, everybody! ❤
