Osprey: Over My Head

The osprey was out there. I could hear him. I took my camera out to photograph him, but I was a little nervous. He had been making eye contact with me more and more frequently. I didn't see him anywhere, as I was retreating to my back door. Hearing a little squeaky squawk, I looked up, one more time, to see if he was flying over. He was not. He was directly over my head glaring at me. I pointed my camera straight up, clicked, and took cover in the bushes. Sheer delight.
