Third painting in this little series. I may come back to the osprey theme in the New Year. For now I’ll leave this lovely bird nesting at home. In reality, the osprey nest at the end of our road, like my nest, is empty and the kids have left. Unlike us, the osprey parents have left home until next spring and will even exit the nest in advance of the occasional reluctant juvenile. I have seen one in the past, staring at horizon, waiting for mom or dad to bring supper. Eventually, it left. Now that’s tough love!
