Osprey in Flight 1

After spotting its mate in the tree, I saw this Osprey on its nest. As I approached, it became fairly excited, flew off the nest, and started flying in very wide circles in the vicinity, calling loudly as it did. I had several opportunities to try and photograph it in flight, but with this bird moving very quickly, found this difficult indeed. My wife happened to be with me, and she was convinced it was going to attack me, as it was so worked up! Canon 100-400 at 400mm, ISO 200, f/5.6 and 1/800 second (hand-held).
