This Cormorant and I were minding our own business when the Osprey suddenly landed. I think little Cormy was too afraid to move.

(Pandion cristatus haliaetus) Honestly, I think I attract these things like flies. I was standing in full view with my tripod when this Osprey circled me and landed about 20 feet away.
