    Looks like that Osprey is about to enjoy a little “sole food”!!!

    I watched an osprey do the same (very successful) maneuver across from Mee Kwa Mooks last week. Beautiful photo!

    Great photo Robin! We have enjoyed watching the osprey along Alki Beach this year making impressive dives into the Sound in search of a meal.

Sorry, comment time is over.
