Description
A female adult osprey teaches a young first year osprey how to hunt for fish along the Potomac River. The adult is identified by her yellow eyes, and a "necklace" of darker feathers (not pictured in this shot, but identified in subsequent pictures). The young osprey is identified by the red/orange eyes. This picture was taken at a high shutter speed while hand-holding the camera from a kayak on the Potomac River.
