Wordless Wednesday: No Messing with this Character Get link Facebook Twitter Pinterest Email Other Apps By SandyCarlson - March 09, 2011 This osprey lives about a quarter of a mile away from my parents' home in North Carolina. An intrepid hunter and excellent mother, she has a lot to say about many things.

You honor it in a beautiful way.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyLisa at Greenbow7:50 AMYou must be able to get fairly close to this bird to get such great shots. Fun.

I was needing a bird fix :) and these are amazing.We visited a reserve in Florida years ago.. it was full of osprey and their nesting places, butterflies, and the trees had been the recent victim of fire ... I believe there was a connection. And it was so incredible , the birthing and dying .ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyThis Is My Blog - fishing guy2:20 PMSandy: Amazing captures, I love that bird.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyUnknown10:18 PMOh he's awesome!
