Yesterday during our traditional Sunday hike, we saw two Ospreys working on their nest. The nest was already huge, but they kept adding material for hours. We saw them in the beginning of our hike, and later when we returned.

I believe Ospreys are my favorite bird of prey. I think they are cool. I really enjoy watching them. The Osprey population is growing, and they are not an endangered species. I took many photos of them yesterday, but these two are my favorites. (Safely purchase prints with any credit card, via my gallery through Fine Art America.

Ospreys are sometimes called River Hawk, Sea Hawk, or Western Osprey. Their mainly feeding of fish in rivers, lakes, and the ocean. One of their super powers is that they can see extremely well under water.

The Osprey is a hawk, but yet so different from other family members, that it is classified as a separate type of bird. You recognize them easily by how they fly, their wings almost looks like they are broken. They take the shape of an “M” when they fly. Their  movements are still smooth, and very fluid. Watching them makes me smile. They are truly magnificent birds.

More photos from yesterdays hike in amazing NorCal to come..to be continued.. 🙂

It’s all about experiences, and the healing power of nature. Life is about choosing happiness. I entered the magic world of photography when I was five years old. My gypsy soul have taken me to many different countries, and definitely taught me to be more humble. I believe that you are what you eat, body and soul. I enjoy growing my own food, and spending time outdoors. A Sagittarius loves to travel, have an open mind and, and a philosophical view. It motivates them to wander around the world in search of the meaning of life. Sagittarius is extrovert, optimistic and enthusiastic, and likes changes. A lot of that perfectly describes me. The fact that my ancestors, on both parents sides, were vikings, doesn’t exactly lessen my desire to explore. Maybe a slightly more mindful exploring, compared to the average viking. My blog, and my art prints is a results of my (inner and outer) explorations. Love, Maria
