Ospreys signify spring to me. The males often return from their wintering ground far to our south around the first of spring. The nest we watch from our home in Anchor Bay totally blew down in the winter storms. The male arrived and began working on building a new nest. The female arrived about two weeks later. She is now sitting on the nest, so perhaps there are eggs in there.
Allen Vinson trained his camera on an Osprey in flight. They have such powerful wings.
Thanks to Allen for allowing me to share his photos with you here. To see much more of Allen's nature photography, here is his website: http://allenvinson.smugmug.com/
