This young male Osprey was an absolute treat to watch. It spent the better part of a half hour looking for a meal at a pond. With its head always down, focused on the water, it would soar then stop and hover, then move on. Unfortunately I never did get a good shot of it diving into the water.
This series was taken after one attempt it made – you can tell my how matted its feathers are as it was still wet. Taken in Longmont, Colorado.
