Outside our rental, there is a canal of sorts. Its level goes up and down with the tides.
There are so many birds here.
Today I watched an osprey, trying to get something to eat.
He was a beautiful thing.
Every now and then, he would stay in the same place, beating his wings to not go anywhere, while intently staring down at the water.
I have never seen them do this before.
But maybe I was never sitting around just looking.
He did this for the longest time...........swoop, stop, hover, swoop some more. Watching.
He would poise to strike, but if he didn't see anything worth while, he would swoop off, and look elsewhere.
Amazing that he could see anything from the height he maintained......
Go. See him on the right.......I tried to follow him with my camera, but he was too fast.
I did catch him splashing down.....I bet his talons were OUT.
That fish gave him a little argument.
And soon he was off again.
Without the fish.
Better luck next time, I guess.
Can I just say it's a beautiful day?
