But it is in the face of an osprey! The power companies on both sides of Lake Champlain have provided nesting platforms for the ospreys that frequent the lake. This nest has been successful this year, it is close to the Little Chazy River and the lake shore about 3/4 mile from our camp. I was a threat, but all she did was yell at me if I stayed in the car and took pictures from there. A Harley rider stopped to take pictures when he saw what I was shooting. As soon as he got off the bike to get his camera out, she took off from the nest and started diving at him and his passenger. She was having no part of humans on foot.
