There is a good-sized pond about a quarter of a mile from here as the crow flies, or perhaps I should say as the osprey flies. I was strolling around the yard as I'm wont to do on a Sunday afternoon, and I saw what I thought might have been a bald eagle. After a minute I realized it had circled back. (It seemed to be flying over the area of the power line that runs alongside the far side of my neighbor's property.) I fetched my camera in hopes that I would get a third glimpse.
(This was the best shot.)
When I came back out with my camera, the first shot was quite distant even zoomed in,
but then the bird obliged me by flying overhead. I'm pretty sure it's an osprey.
