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.


The photos were taken at Belle Haven Marina, located along the tidal Potomac River in suburban Washington, D.C., south of Old Town Alexandria, Virginia USA.
