Fish Dinner


I had gone down to the dock to watch the start of the end of the day when the fish hawk flew in, fish in claw, and landed just a few yards away from me.  I have never had them land when I was there.



The osprey couple appear to be more comfortable using our dock as an interim stopping point.  Here he/she had just caught a very nice shad and was resting before sharing with the mate.  It looks like he/she will be a good provider for the coming fledglings.




I do not know what I did in a former life, but I must have been very, very, very good to be given such lovely sunsets as the cap to this spring day. (Click on photos for a better view.)
