Marie Wardell submitted this photo she took of an Osprey at the tip at Privateer Creek back on July 7, 2014.
Marie said, “It felt like 100 degrees that day in July 2014. I had biked to the tip of Privateer Creek along Pelicans Watch beach. When I arrived I sat under the shade provided by a massive live oak. As I gulped my water, I looked up and noticed an osprey staring down at me. I kid you not, he was panting! At one point he looked as though he was damning me with his eyes! I imagined him saying, ‘If you don’t share that water, there is no telling what I might do!’ I fired off a few shots and sat back watching him in amazement.
“Taken with my trusty Nikon D40 mounted with Sigma 120-400 mm lens. Focal length 150mm F/6.3 1/640/second.”
Thanks Marie for sharing your photo!
