to the songs of our birds, or watching
their peculiar habits, or delineating
them in the best way that I could."
John James Audubon
I have never really seen an osprey before
this trip, and I was able to experience one
up close. We came upon this one perched
on top of this dead tree out in the middle of
Lake Martin. He let us get really close, and I
had him in my telephoto lens the whole time.
He finally flew, and I captured the moment he
Then later in the trip, I saw another osprey
dip into Lake Marepas directly in
front of the boat, and snatch a large
fish from the water, and fly off with it.
What a treat to get to see these magnificent
birds in their habitat, and watch them living
freely and fiercely. I was reminded of
Audubon, and added his quote above.
Happy bird-watching, wherever you may be!!
