This female Osprey in Longmont, Colorado apparently really, really did not want her picture taken. She was less than thrilled to have me anywhere near her and made sure I knew it. Despite me remaining a very respectable distance away, she made some noise and then launched into the air.
This image shows her just as she prepped to take flight. Given the distance and very poor lighting conditions, the image is not good quality. However I just love the pose and look so want to share.
