NATASHA: And why are you here? CAROL: I was tracking a suspected terrorist. Well, let me amend that. A terrorist, definitely. NATASHA: How so? CAROL: I lost track of him about two hours before he drove the truck into that building. NATASHA: Oh. CAROL: Yeah, I’m trying not to think about it. Let’s change the subject. Why have you been following me? NATASHA: You knew? CAROL: I knew. Look. You’re probably a very talented spy, but you’re too accustomed to dealing with people who can’t fly. You don’t look up enough. I spotted your trail and was able to soar above you and– NATASHA: You look down too much. CAROL: What? How so? NATASHA: I let you see me three times. Wanted to gauge your reaction. The modern espionage game has much to do with such gadgets as these. CAROL: And those are…? NATASHA: Video cameras. I had seven of them in the skies, patrolling. Would you like to see recorded footage of yourself? CAROL: Uh…not necessary.
Carol, darlin’, not even you can come out on top every time.

And here we see the Danvers in her natural habitat, engaging in the favorite behavior of high-speed airborne scare-play. Some suggest this is the method by which she assesses the suitability of potential partners, but others believe her occasional efforts to startle her pack-mates serve no practical purpose, and in fact may only be indulgent attempts at self-amusement.
CAROL: Have to say…I’m a little surprised. Thought you might squall when I picked you up. NATASHA: It’s faster this way.
