Osprey - Perspective

Wildlife photography in Chicago has challenges. I seek out the natural and outlying areas whenever possible, but much of the wildlife is in the city itself. The decision: Embrace or hide the hand of man. These photos were taken minutes apart. The only difference is my perspective. These birds are likely from the Cargill nest to the north.Large on blackMy stocklist
