My offering is that of what I believe is an Osprey nest. (John, is that right??)
This nest and at least one more are over near the entrance of the camping area at Gulf State Park, Gulf Shores, Alabama (CR 2 entrance). Photos taken January 19, 2010.
Here is another nest, very close to the first:
These dead trees stand where Hurricane Ivan flooded the state park. The sea water killed a lot of vegetation. New growth is coming, but these skeletons are strong reminders of the wrath of Mother Nature on a REALLY bad day.
There is quite a long page over at Wikipedia on Osprey. Interesting reading. This fabulous photo of an osprey was found at this web site about the Ashley National Forest.
*Thanks Linda for the challenges and the opportunity to share some of my other photos. Note to others: Linda has not issued an official challenge. However, Linda and I share many
