Osprey in flight (female)

A four-image time-series of photos showing an Osprey (Pandion haliaetus) in flight during approach and landing on its nest, located on a platform atop a piling in the Potomac River. This individual is a female; she took flight briefly when a fisherman was uncomfortably close to her nest.
