Excellent photo. I don't think I've ever seen an osprey soaring.

Thank you you all very much for these comments ...

These birds, from eggs (which I couldn't see) to little creatures protected by their parents --- a pure JOY to follow their development.

Ronald, this is only one of a few in-flight shots I got ... most shots are Mom and Dad giving me 'The Look;' ! You are close enough ... Lady !

Hello, Peggy, we don't know each other yet, but I saw your name in a comment of one of my friends. I like your Osprey photos very much. I live in Michigan and have never seen one here.

Hello. My New Friend -
So glad you like the Osprey photos. These were all taken in Central Florida where there are many lakes well-stocked with fish! Somebody told me - have a lake - stock with fish - then wait.
That might be true, but here in North Carolina where I now live, I'd need to travel over to coast or at least that direction to find any.
Check out Cornell Ornithology to see if the have placed any web-cams in Michigan. The UP certainly has plenty of water.
Let me know what you find out.
