The weather today was just wonderful, sunny blue skies and 40 degrees warmer than it’s been all week. A friend of mine, knowing I did not have a long lens to go out shooting with, suggested we meet a at local spot and he would lend me his 200 – 600 zoom lens! Now how thoughtful is that! We got there a bit later than usual so I think we missed the morning “feeding”, or maybe it’s been so cold a lot of our feathered friends stayed home with the fireplace on :). There were however numerous “butter butts” as Randy calls them, aka Yellow-Rumped Warblers, I unfortunately did not capture a good shot…I did however manage a few pretty good photos of an osprey. He was cruising above the river going back and forth and I believe, besides fishing, he was posing for us!!
and as we were heading out, he kindly landed in a tree just over the exiting trails, very considerate osprey! I think he was telling us he wasn’t done posing, he appears to be annoyed.
