Regal raptor

This osprey seemed to be enjoying his view when I happened to spot him while driving around the island last week.   I scared The Professor something awful when I shouted at him to 


You'd think he'd be used to it by now.   Girl with camera in car in beautiful surroundings.  Sudden outbursts are going to happen.  So going to happen!

Once The Professor recovered, I snapped these shots through the car window. 

I edited him with Photomatix which added a bit more detail that was lost in my bad focus.

I thought he was quite regal and handsome with wings embracing him like a royal cape.

Soon he had enough of me and took flight. 

Such a magnificent creature.  
Nature's beauty sometimes just leaves me wordless!

Hope your week is off to a great start.
Fall has definitely arrived.
My yard is full of leaves!
