Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

This juvenile Osprey in contemplating flight from the safety of the nest in Belongil Estuary in Byron Bay. Probably a female, because of her large size, she has many attempts at taking that quantum leap of faith and leaving the nest.

Many thanks for checking out my photos, please feel free to give feedback! My wanderings in nature and observations of birds, particularly raptors, is what gives me great joy and constantly reminds me of the beauty and strength of life. My favourites are raptors, I love their freedom, grace, ruthlessness, pride, adaptability and flexibility and I learn much about parenting, protection and blind faith from them.
