SkyWatch: Early Morning Osprey



The warm rays of the early morning sun light this Osprey as it prepares to take flight against a cloudless April Sky.

With the next click of the shutter I captured the image displayed in the blog header.

I don't have anything quite like this. It is a beautiful photo. I clicked it to see the larger image and was somewhat surprised how owl like it is around the eyes.

Such wonderful places, so different from where I have lived. The Hamlet of Gordon, Ohio is where I was born and raised and it is how small hamlets used to be and this one still exists.

Fantastic, I am getting more and more interested in the Osprey after posting the nest building on my blog the other day, a sight I had never seen. I am hoping to see more beautiful sights such as yours and the ones I have captured as well.

Have a good weekend!
