I timed it right to capture a parent Osprey dropping off a fish to one of the young in the nest. This nest is on a man-made elevated nesting platform. Such platforms have become an important tool in reestablishing Ospreys in areas where they had disappeared. This one is located not far from a bay in Cape Cod.
