Do you worry about the photographer or pay attention to the landing you are about to make? This beautiful female Osprey struggled with the decision.
She was originally perched by her nest but decided to relocate at which time she spotted me. This seemed to make her a bit disconcerted and she made a bit of a ruckus then made a landing at the top of a young, spindly pine tree.
That landing though proved to be a bit difficult because rather than making sure she had sure footing, she kept her eye on me. It took a few attempts to get a good grip on the tree before she was finally able to settle in on the new perch.
Taken in Grand Lake, Colorado.
