13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
An osprey makes it presence known with its loud call and imposing presence.

While visiting Fort Desoto Park in Pinellas County, FL, we often see ospreys atop poles or trees. This one was unusual as it was closer than usual and provided a beautiful photo with lots of details as the sun was out our back. Oh yes, and the bird was definitely trying to communicate with someone.
