FRAMES: Photo of the Day: Osprey Family (Through The Years)July 13th, 2012 by Meegan Reid
Larry and I have the tendency to shoot certain subjects and events year after year.
The opsrey family at the fairgrounds is one of those yearly photo traditions. Usually we end up shooting them while we are covering a Bluejackets game since, well we are right there and everyone knows how much down time there is during a baseball game.
But being almost mid July, neither one of us had snagged a photo yet so I spent a few hours on Thursday hanging out in the shade underneath a tree awaiting feeding time.
My shot for this year is the one below, but I included shots from the last few years as well:
