The ospreys have built a nest on top of a construction crane by the river in Westerly.  It's a good distance away so I extended my lens to its fullest and then cropped a bit.

In the first photo you can see the adult with the baby behind.  If I had been quick enough I could have shot the other adult bringing food to the baby.

The second photo is a shot of the nest on top the crane.

I have seen osprey nests on telephone poles, and cell phone towers, but this is a first.

Have great weekend, and as always, thanks for stopping by..............*s*

The perennials have been blooming like mad this year.  I think all the rain and the relatively mild winter have had a great deal to do with it.

My poppys are the best they have been in years, helped by the fact that monsoons have not beaten them to a pulp as soon as they bloom.

Columbine and yellow flags are blooming by the pond.  It's a very pleasant place to sit and drink morning tea.  The two oak trees that shaded it are gone, but the swamp maples are big enough to do the job.

Clean up progresses slowly.  We'll  see, grasshopper......

As always, thanks for stopping by.............*s*
