Lost Osprey Photo

Osprey photo
"The very idea of a bird is a symbol and a suggestion to the poet. A bird seems to be at the top of the scale, so vehement and intense his life. . . . The beautiful vagabonds, endowed with every grace, masters of all climes, and knowing no bounds -- how many human aspirations are realized in their free, holiday-lives -- and how many suggestions to the poet in their flight and song!" ~ John Burroughs

While cleaning out some files, I found this baby Osprey, photographed from our boat this past summer with a telephoto lens as we went whizzing by. Wonder where he/she is today?

Fantastic photo! The young ones look uncombed sitting on their pile of sticks.
