Not-so-silly Osprey...

Posted by
Judy aka L@dybug (Brooksville, FL, United States) on 10 November 2014 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

...I almost got hit by a car capturing this osprey as he pinned his fish dinner to the top of the pole. I'm laughing now, but it wasn't funny then.

This appeared in the Color Spotlight, 11/10/'14

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

Photography does have its dangers . . stepping backward for a wider view can be terminal.
