    • Thanks Sue, yes a whale watch adventure is a most exciting encounter, especially on their return to the south with their new baby calves. My grandies loved it, and of course we always do:-)

  1. That’s an impressive nest!! I do enjoy watching birds of prey. They are so beautifully designed. I loved the inspiring music on the whale video. They are such wondrous creatures. I’ve never been up close to them, only seen them from the shore. It must be a wonderful experience to see them up so close. I’m glad you were able to spend such a special time enjoying nature with family. 🙂

    • Thanks Jane, thanks for your kind comments, I agree raptors are my favorites, I love filming them. I love that you like my background music, which I originally created for My Beautiful Series DVD set years ago. Yes, it is most exciting seeing the whales up close, especially when they perform for you, like the dolphins do. Seeing their calves jumping about in the water is a thrill also. I was very happy to return knowing I had spent quality time with my daughter and family and my brother also:-)

  2. This really was an entertaining post. The whale breaching and the pelican video set to music were great. The ospreys made me smile. They always make me crack a smile. I like the captioned image too. All those different birds. The black swan are different, I never see black swan unless in a zoo. Lovely images all around.

  3. What a lovely post, Ashley! I am so happy you found two osprey nests – with young ones! And thanks for your kind comments on our ospreys. Love your pelicans and smaller birds on the sand bar, your swans and the wonderful Humpback Whale video 🙂

    • Thanks Tiny, it was like cream on the cake for us to see the Ospreys each day on a holiday away, the lighting was always a challenge to get the shots as we were usually facing into the sun to shoot. Glad you enjoyed the post. Enjoy your weekend:-)

    • Thanks Kathy, whale watching is such a buzz for the whole family, my grandies loved it, as did my daughter who is a professional photographer. It is the only way to get close to them.

  4. Echoing Lee here, indeed, what a trip! And wonderful that authorities in your country do such things as disconnecting power lines for nesting ospreys!

    • Thanks Myra, Yes it is is an an unusual practice but they did it for this Osprey family as they use the nest yearly.and it is on an island away from people. I do pray and hope your home is not too damaged by the flash flood Myra. We remember your family daily. 🙂
