We were out for a bike ride in
It was so warm at home but too cold in Spring Lake,
even at the lake which is a half mile in from the ocean.
I asked the hubs to drive around the lake,
hoping I would spot something fun and exciting that I could photograph.
We circled several times and it finally happened.
I saw this big guy, circling also.
From a distance, I thought it was a Hawk, once it came in closer, I realized it was an Osprey.
I tried several times to get a picture and it was impossible - for me.
The hubs asked for the camera, he knew I was struggling...
and he captured this!
We watched the Osprey for several minutes - awwwww who am I kidding,
we had our eyes on him for at least a half hour.
He was circling and swirling,
- he moved, we moved -
and then we watched him dive straight down in to the water!
He captured dinner and flew off...but not without Chuck capturing this beautiful silhouette.
We will go back, I figure since he got lucky, he will return also.
