PIC OF THE WEEK: 05/04/15 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2015 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Richmond, VA • James River east of Richmond
Notes: We were quick to accept an invitation form our good friends to join them on a Discover The James Eagle tour. Just a couple of days before our reservation, the forecast called for overcast skies and light rain. But that changed the night before or departure. Upon arriving at the boat dock we found clearing skies and a light south-east breeze. Typically, an eastern wind direction carries in clouds and moisture off the Atlantic Ocean, but not that morning. We had blue skies. These were ideal conditions for photographing these birds on the river. Most raptors will approach their prey by flying into the wind and using it as an air-brake. The low trajectory of the morning light fills the bird’s underwing as they glide over the water. So, when the rising sun and breeze are coming from the same direction, it is ideal. The Osprey were particularly active that morning having recently arrived for the nesting season.
