Osprey Eyes

Photographed at our local Osprey nest on Barnegat Bay last week, Dad (left) and Mom (middle) are seen raising three offspring, shown here at a young age of about eight or nine weeks. It’s late afternoon …dinner time, and a fresh fish is the meal at their feet on the right.  What intrigued me was the color or their eyes. 

Below: A closer view of the light gray-eyed adult, contrasting strongly to the orange of the fledgling. 
And below, this same color distinction is seen here with the mom, (now staring at me,) and the orange eye color of the other two siblings.

Insulators

          Some twenty-five years ago, my carrier often took me on the road, occasionally providing time and places to explore. In this case it was a few miles east of Wellsville, NY – Allegheny County, just a few miles north of the central Pennsylvania boarder. I walked along an old, rickety railroad track that had seen better days, and captured these images, and a souvenir hidden in the Brush with a long ago downed and forgotten telegraph pole.
