|American Osprey morning shot|
Later in the day, when I was going out for a run, what do you know, but the osprey was back. So, again I changed plans and got a camera back into my hands. This time the light was much brighter, making for better conditions for photographing this magnificent bird. Again, no luck on the fishing end.
Hopefully the osprey will be back and I'll be able to catch some shots of it capturing a fish. I was able to do this a couple of years ago, but now have stepped up my camera and lens just a bit.

One of the things I like about nature photography is that there is no schedule. Things just happen when they happen. However, it helps tremendously if you're prepared with the equipment, know how to operate your camera for optimal pictures, are up early to capture the morning light, etc. It also helps simply to spend a lot of time outdoors looking for the beautiful shot, my favorite part of all!
