Super shot Debra. Meaningfull. Perfect light on the bird and sharp focus for details. As usual it goes with an interesting story. I can feel the emotion of the young, testing the wings, gaging the wind force. A doubt in the eye and a faith in the hart. There will be a courageous first flight pretty soon.

Thanks Yves, your description is wonderful.

Beautiful portrait and a wonderful series of images Debra! I can imagine how exciting it would be to have such a rare opportunity to photograph a family like this.. thanks for sharing.

Thanks Heather for all your feedback always appreciated. I enjoy sharing the story of the Osprey family.

The oldest sibling is almost ready to fly. Still just testing his/her wings moving from one side of the nest to the other. They are sure a gorgeous and curious bird, interesting to watch and photograph. The little ones will move their head from side to side with curiousity.
