… with dinner in his talons … a successful dive into the pond and this Osprey has a look of satisfaction as he throws his wings skyward and begins the struggle to break free of the water after a dive into the water from a branch about 30′ above the pond. He was totally submerged with his talons going in first to sink into the targeted trout and then comes recovery and escape from the water with dinner in grasp … a short flight to a nearby tree to consume his evening meal completes this cycle.
I absolutely love the diamond like strings of water droplets coming off his wing tips as he stops the rise of the wings and begins the descending power stroke.
Going for a shoot with a friend in the morning, work on the plane in the afternoon to get it ready for flight the end of the week … late afternoon my friend Dennis will be shearing off a two plus month growth of hair … Village Barber in Bell Rock Plaza 928.284.0184 … currently booked through May 22nd. Can’t say enough good things about him and the quality of his work.
Have a great day … enjoy the beauty that surrounds you everywhere you are … and smile, you are here today.
