I’ve taken a lot of pictures of raptors in the air, flying in the distance and high above me in the sky. My closer encounters have been largely in my driveway where the red-shouldered hawks like to chow down. Of course I don’t have a camera. Naturally. But I do remind them to take their leftovers with them and remarkably, they do. I guess they don’t like missing any part of their dinner.
Garry took this one from Tom’s little inflatable boat along the river. The Osprey really picked a special spot for her nest and she is clearly not afraid of the many passing boats in the channel.
