Osprey Family Portrait No. 1
One of three nests I was watching this year. This female had at least three offspring. The third is behind the two in front. In a later photograph another head appears to the left, but I think it was the third young osprey making its way over. In the other nest, it appeared only one osprey was born. The nest was much higher up in a fir tree.
Once mature, Ospreys normally mate for life and generally live 7-10 years, although they can live as long as 20-25.

Nature, animals, beauty have been a source of nourishment throughout my life. Photography allows me to capture, interpret, and share that world of wonder I see about me, and sometimes use what I capture as an inspiration to create something new, by incorporating other exposures, textures or brushwork.
