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