Photo of the Week – On The Verge Of Independence

44th Parallel Photography’s Photo of the Week is back. I missed last week. Not a good week, with having my $1200 tripod, Wimberely gimbal tripod head and flash bracket stolen.

This week’s photo is of a young Osprey taking its first little taste of flying. While we watched, it didn’t manage to leave the nest, but it came close a few times. There were several of us watching and cheering it on. I think we all knew what it was like to try to find the courage to make that first big leap in life. We try not to be anthropomorphic, but at times like this, you just can’t help it.
