They Just Don't Like Each Other
Not the greatest photograph technically, but I still thought you would find this image fascinating for what it depicts. The eagle had ventured too near the osprey's nest. It may even have been intentional. It looked that way to me. The osprey's response was immediate and energetic. As I have said before, however, I have yet to see such an encounter come to real blows. It is mostly posturing, though I have no doubt it would have escalated if the eagle hadn't backed off.
