Osprey Mom shields babies from hot sun in Montana

This Osprey Mom had her wings stretched out to protect her two babies from the hot summer sun. I saw them on the high pole near the powerline and pulled over to get this shot with my zoom lens, Nikon Cool Pix. The Mom just stayed like that as long as I was shooting.
