Our regular photo contributor Steve Marsh sends these amazing images of ospreys on Lake Norman. He says:
Got this shot Friday afternoon of two young ospreys in their nest on Stumpy Creek, outside Troutman. When we pulled out they were in the nest crying and when we got back a couple of hours later they were still there, still crying. We figured they are this year’s brood and since Momma wasn’t around, thought it might be a lesson in tough love and the ‘you’re on your own’ concept.

PHOTOS OF THE DAY
We’re looking for photos that capture the people and places that make Cornelius what it is. It could be a pretty picture from an event, a youth sports team photo, a pet, a quirky wildlife photo or an oddity. Send ‘em to us (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we’ll consider them for publication.
Requirements: Send us whatever you have – color or black-and-white JPGs preferred. If you have the ability to do so, we ask that you resize photos to not more than 600 pixels wide. That box on the front page of the site is exactly 595 pixels by 270 pixels, if you’re able to crop yourself. But you needn’t be limited to that size. Unlike our previous banners, with Photo of the Day, we can take any shape.
Wondering if you have something worthy? Call 704-896-0569 or email at the address above. And thanks for joining us!
