My, What Big Eyes You Have

Even on a slow day, I can usually manage a picture or two that I like from a day’s walk at Theler. Considering how many Osprey I’ve seen this year, it seems appropriate on a recent visit that I got this shot of the resident flying overhead with a sole in its talons.

It was even considerate enough to wait for us on our return to the car

and seemed more than willing to pose for us.

I don’t think I’ve ever got a straight-on shot of an Osprey before. The size of those eyes must explain why it is so successful at spotting fish while hovering high in the sky.
