Yay, osprey.

An Osprey at Iona Beach.  When you see this, a fish-eating bird of prey hovering above a pond,  you know what's coming next .

The power dive.  Look at the form--eyes on the target, talons open.  The pursuing redwing is bonus.

Lunch is snagged.  A brown bullhead, I think.


A bit of a struggle--grappling with a fish whilst trying to launch yourself skyward can be tricky. 


Success. 

(Although perhaps the least photogenic picture of an osprey ever.)
