After Diving for Fish 1
It was dinner time for the Ospreys and they were out diving for fish. I didn't see this one dive. It came out of nowhere but I heard the splash to my right and this is what I got as it came up out of the water without a fish.
It was a nice warm day at the salt marsh. Most of the birds were sunning themselves or sleeping. Occasionally an Osprey, as shown here, would move from one tree to another.

A Snowy Egret comes in for a landing in a salt marsh. The position of the egret in relation to the sun casts both a shadow and reflection onto the water.
Seagull Banking Left
Broken Beak's Takeoff
I named this seagull Broken Beak. The front of both the upper and lower beak on this seagull is missing. The dark area on the front of the gull's beak is the inside of the beak.
V is for Victory
Success is catching a crab. See my prior 2 postings for the dive.
