Osprey in flight

Osprey in flight

 

Osprey perched in tree watching the spring

 

Funny how drastically my Saturday nights have changed since my twenties…Last night, I watched a couple of Ospreys hunting in the spring behind our home.  The good news is that the alligator did not bother me while I stood on the edge of the water, and also I got a pretty clear photo of an Osprey in flight!  🙂

  1. Nice flight shot. Osprey are very cool birds!
    I also seem to have altered my Sat. night activity *just a bit* since my 20s.
    I can remember getting done with work at a bar at 2am and be looking for something to do. Those days are sure long gone. 🙂
    Glad you saw the happy alligator too!

    • I know…If you think about it, seeing the Osprey and the gator in the same weekend should qualify as a pretty ‘exciting’ weekend! I worked late night in restaurant kitchens before I had kids, so I can relate to late night activity, too! 🙂 Those days are gone…and I am HAPPY they are! 🙂

    • I have! My grandpa always told me the story of how I would cry and cry as a baby until he took me outside and I would “shut up and stare.” Lol, now that I think about it, it makes sense as an adult…I really do like being outside…and taking pics of the outdoors makes me HAPPY. Who knew? I guess Grandpa did. 🙂
