Shortly after slipping the boat into the lake yesterday morning I spotted a pair of Ospreys circling overhead and then swooping in to land in a dead tree, my first osprey sighting this season.
With the ospreys back lit by the brightening eastern sky I focused on shooting silhouettes of the graceful birds.
While processing wildlife photos I most often attempt to duplicate the scene as I observed it however with this set of images I strayed into the realm of processing as I would have liked the scene to appear.
Although osprey sightings at this lake are quite common throughout the season I have not observed any signs of nesting. Perhaps this will be the year; I can always hope!
