I spent this thanksgiving along the Colorado River at a campground near Palo Verde. There were a few Osprey working waters and one evening this one landed on a nearby pole to eat it's dinner...

I shot the picture with a Coolpix 4500 though a Astro-Tech 102ED fitted with a 32mm Plossl, I probably got a 100 shots like this one...

To continue the story... the next morning an Osprey perched on the same pole for a few moments and I was able to capture a few quick shots.
