Bravo Mike! Super shooting. I'm with Dave, picking a favorite is real tough. What a great series!

Mike, I see you are from Richmond. I was in Tappahannock a few weeks ago to help take care of an ailing relative. He lives on the river, so I had access to photograph Osprey for the first time.
It was not easy to do, so I appreciate the quality of the series you have here. Very nice work.


just a few of my thoughts...
