I posted a photo of this same Osprey as she came to her nest, a few days ago. This is another position of her wings and feet as she begins to sit down. She lives near Fairfield, Montana, at Freeze Out Lake. I love the grace and power in their wings…

Enjoying what Montana has to offer, greatly influences my work. Rodeos, horses, mountains, all of this plays a part in what I create. I lived here in Montana, taking care of cattle and horses on the ranch until I retired a few years ago.

I now spend my time recreating in Montana, and creating photos and paintings from what I see here in this state.

    Great Capture!!

  • Thank you Brian. It’s so difficult to get these birds so the image is clear. I hope I’m getting better at it! This last time, I got several that fit the bill…:)
