Happy mother's day...

On occasion you get an opportunity to see something that is rare and different. This Osprey's nest is one of those occasion. Seeing and shooting at eye level across a nest was a opportunity that one cannot pass up.

The nest had two chicks about 3 weeks old at the time and they were atanding and walking. Mom was always around to watch over them.

1. I always want to grow up like mom.

2. For all moms out there that sacrifice everything for your children.

This day the temperature reached 95f/35c, there she is shading and comforting her young ones in the blistering heat.
