Focus On Life Week 33 ~ The View of Above

This week Sally says to change our photo taking perspective and look up.

We were walking along the boardwalk in Solomon's and I was watching the seagulls hoping to get a good shot when I spotted this bird.  I thought it was a hawk until it started hovering and I realized it was an osprey.  I'm so used to seeing seagulls that I wonder how many times I've missed seeing an osprey because I don't usually look up.  It was fascinating to watch.

Have a great weekend!

  5. I agree with everyone. Yours is an amazing shot. And I am very impressed with your bird knowledge. I could have guessed for a million years before naming an osprey. Just lovely.

  6. Annette, that photo is gorgeous. I hope you don't mind that I just pinned it! I did not know that osprey could hover and would not have realized what it was. You taught me something today.

  9. Great bird shot... most of our birds are seagulls, crows or jays.... The screaming going on at this time of year when the babies are learning how to fly is horrendous!

  12. It's a perfect picture Annette, and ospreys are truly magnificent birds. We have them everywhere on the West coast of Florida, the first time I spotted one I mistook it for an eagle.
