Hi All! Here are some shots from my secret osprey nest taken this morning. She’s very aggressive and hates my guts. Its really amazing hearing the whoosh sound as she fly’s by me trying to take my head off.

Thanks for looking! Anthony

Man, Anthony! You aren't kidding. The look she's giving you in #2 and #5 you can tell she means business. Great captures!!
Hi Kevin! Yes, she means business! I only stay for about 10-15 minute because she constantly circle's and fly by me until I leave.

Wow, great job Anthony!!! I can see why you keep it a secret spot. You must be pretty close for these.
Hi James, The nest is only about 50 feet away and about 30 feet high.

Here's a shot of the nest.

Very nice series Anthony. These are truly magnificent animals. I've never seen this kind of aggressive behavior before though. I need to go back and look at some of the shots that I got at Blackpoint in Feb.

Thanks for sharing. :wink:

Hi Frank! This osprey is very aggressive and will not stop until I leave.

Beautiful series! That's one nasty, mean look on her face. Nice to see she's cleared up all the local spare rope & string! *LOL*

You've really captured her well. Hopefully you'll get some great shots of the babies too. Cheers, S

I wouldn't take it personally, I think she is just protecting her nest and doesn't know you don't mean her or it any harm.
