Osprey Family @ St. Michaels, Maryland
Osprey - Pandion haliaetus (?)
One of my favorite photos from the year so far. On this day it was almost 100 degrees out, and to get this shot I took off from work and drove 2 hours to this nest. The shot I wanted to get was a shot of the female shading the chicks from the heat. I didn't get it this day, but I did get it 2 days later - yet to be posted...
