This nest seemed empty, but I hung around for awhile anyway to see if an osprey would return to it. I could hear one nearby and so I waited patiently. Just as I was about to give up and move on, I heard a whoosh and hurried to raise my camera and focus. Out of 5 shots this is the only one with the osprey in the picture.
The bird never actually landed on the nest, but kept circling over it and then went to a nearby tree staring at me and chirping shrilly. It seemed my presence was causing it distress, so I turned my camera off and left.
