Default Osprey all fluffed up

I found the Osprey flying from light pole to light pole trying to divert me from it's nest. Couldn't get any good shots on the couple on the nest, it was to big and high for a good view at them. Looks like he got wet fishing and was fluffing up trying to dry out. This was late afternoon about 1 hr before sunset so I had to bump the ISO to 800. He was doing a lot of shaking his feathers so I had to keep the SS up.

Thanks all for the feedback, it was a fun bird to shoot, it wanted to hang around the nest so it flew from lamp post to lamp post as I followed, Great end to the day.
