Whenever.....


Whenever I follow the urge for an impromptu stroll I am always granted a moment of priceless wonder.
Spying this Osprey who had decided that this sculpture was the perfect place for a nest, I  slowly walked forward to share a moment in it's presence.

What a majestic being, serenely standing guard over it's nest, the moment was tinged with sadness however, for as ingenious as it was for this piece of art to become it's home, the truth of the matter is there are limited natural places of safety for such a nest to be made given humanities destruction of what was once a natural paradise.
Yet here the chicks will be out of harms way, nestled in a cradle of steel, free to be nurtured by their loving parents and I pray to live a long and peace filled life......
