21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

Two Ospreys (Pandion haliaetus) courageously guard their nest built with a diverse assortment of materials on the top of a utility pole that was near a gas station in Titusville, Florida. (As I hope you can see, the second Osprey’s head is right inside the nest on the left side of the picture.)
