There is a town dock where I love to go during the warm months after a long day of meetings. Near the dock is an osprey nest and I typically sit quietly for hours until the sun sets waiting to get a decent shot of the Ospreys and their families. I also enjoy watching and photographing the swallows and terns, which are plentiful. On the day this image was captured, this osprey was flying back and forth in response to pleas from its mate. Perhaps the osprey was a bit manic because there was too much activity on the dock. A family of three (humans) was fishing and a waterman was also working on his boat engine nearby.

I have never seen a bird in flight from this angle before. Your image gives such a clear sense of their strength and the small miracle of what it takes to defy gravity and hold your weight up in the air. Well done Linda!
