Our Migrating Friends are Back!

Today’s post features 3 images I captured yesterday afternoon at our Lake of the Oarks (Missouri) lake home. While taking a break on our dock, the familiar “chirping” of an Osprey interrupted the quiet relaxation. I immediately ran into the house, grabbed my camera and headed back to the dock.

Over the next 30 minutes, 2-3 osprey were frequently fishing over our cove. Here are 3 images I captured as they fished the lake:




Hopefully, these guys will hang around for a while, allowing me more opportunities to capture their incredible dives into the water.
