… what an incredible day to get shots of two creatures that fish for their living. On the way back from Cottonwood this afternoon I stopped by Bubbling Ponds and got several hundred shots of an Osprey who was cruising the ponds to find an early dinner; he left after a while without finding his meal and shortly thereafter this Blue Heron dropped in to try his luck. I was in the sun, it had read 104F in the parking lot and I didn’t stay to see how he did. Looks like a very healthy guy, so suspect he has been eating well.
From the ponds it was up to the Trout Farm in Oak Creek Canyon and I got some nice shots of a Black Hawk and this Osprey which had just secured his meal to end the day … water flying everywhere as he had just cleared the water and making his escape.
Into the weekend for me … have wonderful days and look for beauty …you are surrounded by it … maybe toss the television sets into the trash bin … seems like a perfect solution to getting garbage out of our lives.
… and keep breathing, it makes the day so much better 🙂
