Driving home from work today, I was casually looking for my "photo of the day" ... for my 365 project.
I was delighted to notice a pair of osprey on nesting platform, right beside the road. I had to find a place to turn around, drive back, and hope they were still there!
I was so glad I did!
Photographing birds is SO difficult. Not only do they move fast and the feathers are often hard to focus on but, unless you really study them, they move eratically and in unexpected directions!
It helps that osprey are fairly large ... much easier to keep track of! Today I was extra-lucky, I had both the wind and the sun at my back!
Here's one of my fav's from this pit-stop shoot ... more will be posted in my smugmug gallery soon!
