Mom in Flight

I shot this photo of an Osprey and her nest on the Cape a few weeks ago. I love the lines and how the curved wire mirrors the position of the mother osprey in flight. She has built a beautiful, large nest in not the safest of places, yet, she has commandeered a yellow caution tape to warn that it is others, not she, who needs to worry, if anyone dares mess with her babies. I love that nature exists here in harmony with our man-made structures, that there is such beauty in the interplay between the two -- this timeless dance between man and nature.
