What a great shot! She means business here and you captured the action perfectly.

Nice shot Debra. Great composition of the bird and the hydro pole. Unusual pose of the osprey. I really like it.

Thanks Yves, she was headed down directly towards me. Not sure if I have ever been able to photograph her at that angle before.

When I arrived at the nest today the male Osprey was off looking for food and the female Osprey was sitting on the hydro pole across from the nest. I didn't take her long before she decided to give me a couple of warnings fly over my head and return to the nest.
