Ace the Osprey is vibrant. Sheer concentration. Intent evident from beak to talon. Alive in the early light.
Ace, the Daredevil Osprey!
In all the low light, incoming rain and wind that was starting to blow this morning, Ace put on a show.
Ace was flying a dangerous path down the length of the fishing pier.
He skimmed the top of the railings and dove immediately into the river after a fish.
He missed both the railing and the fish.
The male osprey Ace at the Haw River below the Jordan Lake Dam.
Ace the osprey had caught a small fish.
He then changed directions in the air to head back to his nest.
An immature herring gull wanted the fish.
Ace tried to hold on to the fish so he could feed his mate Amelia………

Ace the Osprey has a favorite perch for eating his fish that he has caught at Jordan Lake.
One of the security lights makes a perfect table.
