This is the same Osprey I photographed and featured on the blog a few months ago under the title “Osprey Hovering In Flight“. It was much closer when I took this picture, revealing much more detail. Please click the image to see a larger version of it.
Osprey’s are one of many fishing birds that will hover in mid-air when they see a potential meal. To stop themselves they push their wings forward which creates the dramatic shape displayed here.
If you click on the image, above, you can see a larger version of the photo, which shows more detail.
This pine stands alone near the top of a hill, in a meadow at Shenandoah National Park.
The tower at the Circuit Of The Americas track in Austin, Texas stands 251 feet above the race track. I didn’t go up the tower but it was pretty impressive to look at from the ground.
