Sunrise Osprey Fledgling

Jordan Lake Dam, July 13, 2021. I was tracking this new fisher to the dam this morning when he crossed between me and most of the rising sun. Suddenly this fledgling male osprey was a sepia image somehow brought to the present by my digital camera but relying on the experience of yesteryear’s fragile film. The osprey was composed of feathers, sharp talons, utter concentration and incredible beauty. I thanked him for blessing my day.
