Like Mother, Like Daughter

Earlier this Spring I caught the mom Osprey diving off the nest and catching the wind. Last week I saw her juvenile daughter doing the same. Mom easily has a six-foot wing span; daughter is probably at a 3.5 to 4 foot span. Note the juvenile's opaque brown eyes and the "necklace" that indicates she's probably female.

The color difference is due to time of day and year. The juvenile was bathed in the warm light of a July evening; mother was photographed in afternoon Spring light.
