How Hot Is It?

SDP  8-3-11
Well, this is something I've never seen before: an osprey standing on a sandbar cooling its talons. That's how hot it is! Typically, ospreys like to roost up high where they have a great view of fish and small prey. But, this guy sacrificed his hunting time for a cool down. That's one hot bird.

Actually, also a smart bird. So, how is your big, really big, hugely big project going?

Seems to be a hot summer everywhere. I'm heading to Gulf Shores AL soon, and I fully intend to cool my talons in the water too. :)

I wish I were standing on a sandbar with my talons in the water right now... Where is Bunche Beach? Never heard of it.

Wow, never seen that before. I guess he thought he'd be closer to the fish. Great catch.

Very unusual for sure. Ospreys are such beautiful birds. Re your comment on Ocala: How do you know I didn't try a Michelob Ultra first? ;-)
