13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
The Chesapeake Bay Envionrmental Center on the Easter Shore in Maryland is a wonderful place to observe nature any time of the year. I came back to see if the osprey nests were being used and they were.
The Mother was sitting on top of her nest with the young ones underneath her. I could see the Father flying in with a fish. He noticed me and I realized that feeding the babies was more important in life than me waiting for the perfect shot. So I took a few and left in order to give them back their privacy.
