April Outing - RESULTS

Thanks to everyone who participated in the "Covid Home Challenge"!  Read the Blog Post to find the link to the gallery of all submissions.

The #1 liked photo belongs to Jon Montigny, with 8 likes!  Here is what he had to say about the image:

"Cocktail hour this evening, my wife and I were sitting on our deck when this osprey flew in and perched high in a pine across the pond. Knowing it was feeding time I went in and got my camera. Ten minutes later the osprey hit the water and came up with this bass. When they come out of the water they always hover for a second to shake off the water. Fun to capture that moment even if the sun was backlighting."
