I finally got a decent photo of this osprey at Lake Murray.

I’ve seen it a few times a month for a couple of years. The nest is at the top of a utility pole that looks to be about 50 feet tall—far too distant for my iPhone XS to get a good shot.

I’ve been putting off carrying my Nikon with the long lens on my daily long walk with the dog, because it seems like a lot to carry. But I did it yesterday, and it turns out to be very comfortable, so I’ll be doing more walks with the Nikon. Good timing too—spring is when the daisies bloom at the park, which is already starting. And in a few weeks—goslings!
