While spending some time on Bethel Beach this past weekend,
I was lucky enough to catch this shot of an osprey as she landed on her nest.
Ospreys have always been one of my favorite birds.
Native Americans believe the Osprey teaches us to be risk takers-
to plunge into things with faith and not fear.
And they mate for life.
"Its shrill scream seems yet to linger in its throat, and the roar of the sea in its wings. There is the tyranny of Jove in its claws, and his wrath in the erectile feathers of the head and neck. It reminds me of the Argonautic expedition, and would inspire the dullest to take flight over Parnassus."
~Henry David Thoreau
