Spotted this Osprey sitting atop the tree at Kirk Park Pond.

Osprey holding desperately onto limb

My husband and I were enjoying a nice drive on Clear Lake Rd. The sun was shining, but the skies were darkening. As we got to Kirk Park Pond, I spotted an Osprey sitting at the top of a tall pine tree. I had my camera with me, as I always do, just in case, so my husband pulled into the viewing area and I started taking pictures. Then the wind started picking up, blowing the Osprey's feathers. Soon, the wind got so strong that he had trouble holding onto the limb. When it started raining, he finally flew off to the other side of the pond.
