  1. Rebekah, this is glorious! Great shot. I’m really searching for something that might be suitable….. Frankly, my total triumph will even be finding something mediocre 😉

  2. Oh, how I LOVE Osprey and you have captured their elegance of flight perfectly! (That, and the photo challenge as well, from the description; ).
    Nicely done!
    Is Gaspereau the species of fish?

      1. Oh COOL! That’s what an Alewife is?! I remember hearing about them in books I read as a kid… Assumed they were some sort of fish-eating bird in Britain, just from context, but had no idea that they were the same as our neighbours the Osprey.
        They always look like they’re “up to something” (guessing it’s their “mask”; )
        HA! (LOL) Thought you were talking about the bird (until I looked up Alewife; ) obviously Gaspereau is the French-Canadian name, n’est pas?

        1. Well, I was right about the connection with fish, at least (high school was a very l o n g time ago; )

    1. Thank you!

      It’s cropped! He was way up in the sky, and I have a long lens. I was very lucky with this shot… normally, they get blurred.

  3. Amazing photo Rebekah – the fact that you not only got the bird, but you captured it in action! I’m very impressed with your photography skills. I love the shot.
    I’m feeling a bit deflated now we have come to the end of phptp101, it was quite a buzz having to come up with something new every day. I’ve learned a lot over the past month and made some new friends here.

    1. Thanks … for your kind words! 🙂 In this case, it was all up to the bird LOL.
      I feel the same way. Myself and two others are going to start something called ‘blog hop’. It will take place on Thursdays [entitled Just Thursday], starting the 5th. I’m not even sure of how it will work, I think there are details to be ironed out. Stay tuned 😀
