Osprey, La Jolla Cove, La Jolla California

Robert Wilson and I had already had a good morning at Lake Hodges with the Grebes, but we decided to go back to San Diego via La Jolla Cove…not a direct route I know, but we were more interested in photo ops and efficiency. We found a parking space on the hill between the Cave Store and Scripps Park and had no more than gotten set up on the Pelicans and Cormorants on the cliff below when an Osprey came in off the sea right over our heads and landed on a light pole. It sat there for longer than I did, and I photographed it from about every angle. It insisted on sitting with its back to the sun. Magnificent bird! Sony RX10iv at 495mm. Program mode. 1/1000th @ ISO 100 @ f4.5. Processed in Polarr and Apple Photos.
