December Takes Flight

Here's the calendar page for this week. I caught this osprey coming in for a landing at Fort DeSoto Park up in St. Petersburg. I think I hung around this nest shooting for half an hour or so. One bird would go off and hunt while the other stayed with the young. Every time one would fly back into the nest, I'd get another great action shot.

Great shot. When I used to live in North Carolina's Outer Banks, these were my favorite birds to watch in action. Here in the DC area we have plenty along the Potomac. I love these birds..
