Osprey dinner time



Thursday evening we hopped aboard the Nature Conservency's boat (Naples, FL) for a sunset cruise. We went passed through a section of the intercoastal that our guide called "Osprey Alley". I'm not sure if that's the official name, but it should be. There were osprey nests on almost every channel marker and at every nest we saw babies being fed. I took lots of photos, most of them disappointing, but here are two that I love...

Thanks everyone! I watched an osprey fly around here this evening - made a couple of dives (and they are not graceful), but came up empty the times that I saw him.

Oooooo! Raptor pictures! Loving 'em!

Those babies are so ugly they are cute, huh? Those big eyes in that weird little head.

Love it!
