Osprey by Sacramento River, Chico, CA

Posted by
LauraS (Chico, United States) on 9 July 2012 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

The river flows close to the road here. Crews have built some platforms up in the telephone pole line to attract eagles to the area. This one nest we found was occupied by Osprey, not Eagles. This is in Chico, CA.

Visual learner that I am, I enjoy taking photos, seeing others photos, and sharing them with all of you.
How I view the world may influence others to see more clearly that the world I live in is truly a beautiful and spectacular place. I hope I can share my sense of wonder with others. I see the world in beauty, awe, reverence and wonder.

Truly, I am an amateur who loves to look at my world, marvel at its beauty, diversity, and I capture a slice for myself to remember and share. Surely I get inspired by the work I see from other photographers and it moves me to try new things.

Yay! Good Inflight Catch! Love the Ospreys. They are bold and lovely. Camp and nest on our telephone poles every year the same married couples I bet. Beautiful underwings give me kink in neck watching them fly.
