Osprey and chick

We spent this 4th of July weekend in a cottage on the banks of Rappahannock river in Northern Neck in Virginia. An osprey family had its nest on a post close to the bank. After 2 days of watching the protective parents and the chick from a distance, and letting them watch me, I was finally able to sneak in close enough to take this shot. The mother with a morsel in her claws, was hovering over the nest to land and feed its chick.

Location: Northern Neck, Virginia, USA
