Osprey

This Osprey nest was one of the highlights from my two month stay in Alexandria, VA. It was located near the Belle Haven Marina on the Potomac river directly across from National Harbor. I was fortunate to gain access to a boat dock which allowed me to get close enough for a decent image with my air-travel-limited photography gear.

There were three chicks in the nest, but I never could capture them all standing at once. It was fun to watch as they neared the fledge stage and would move to the edges of the nest to peek out.
