There is nothing halfway about Ospreys.
Their intensity, their bonds, their passion… inspire me.
Working on the photo album for this season, so many more amazing images to come soon! 😉
Seeing a family of Osprey chicks learn, one by one, how to fly has been one of the most amazing life experiences.
What that must FEEL like.
To suddenly lift up, to become airborne…
I find the whole process incredibly moving, and very inspiring.
And I thank these majestic wild birds, for that. ❤
For weeks now at the local Osprey nest, it’s been all about…
What a fascinating process, watching the osprey chicks slowly begin to learn just what those WINGS are for!
(Lots more photos to come!)
Someone once asked me if I was ever able to capture our local Mamma Osprey feeding her young.
Because of the angle/distance I have to shoot at from below the nest, for a very long time the chicks were impossible to see during feedings.
And by the time they grew tall enough to be seen in the nest, they were pretty much feeding themselves.
Today, for whatever reason, one hungry chick that appears to be the smallest of them all…
Had Mamma all to herself for a real FEAST!
I guess all things do come, to those who wait.
And wait, and wait, and wait. 😉
The powerful balance of these amazing wild birds…
Take my breath away.
