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.

  3. Did you take these pictures, they are amazing...
    I find it so utterly fascinating when I see photography of birds, as I yet have to capture some decent images. The Scandinavian birds are too shy and very difficult to approach, I am always so surprised seeing so many close up images on so many blogs of such a variety of wild birds.;)

  8. Your photography always amazes me! How do you do it? I miss all the wildlife I grew up with. That I saw near the water's edge. I wonder....do they miss me, too? When I leave this desert, I will miss the wildlife here as well. Nature is such a blessing. You honor it in a beautiful way.

  9. You must be able to get fairly close to this bird to get such great shots. Fun. They pass through our area but never stop to set up housekeeping.

  17. Gorgeous, amazing, spectacular photos! We have ospreys visit on occasion (outside of Seattle), but the bald eagles chase them away. It's all fascinating. How can people say bird-watching is boring?!

  26. Sandy.
    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 .
