Introducing leggings. Step into a world of stunning designs.

This bird of prey, Osprey, inhabits rivers, estuaries and coastal headlands. Soars over waterways in search of fish, plunging feet first into the water to snare its prey in its talons. It is a brown bird with darker brown streak through eye, yellow eye, brown mottling across chest, paler underbelly. It breeds in winter.
Once the chick/chicks fledge the parents will fly and do barrel rolls over the nest holding a fish to persuade them to fly and then to fish on their own.

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.
