Yeah, if you are the fish immediately below this, you are about to have a really, really bad day. 😀
This past weekend I spent some time photographing these awesome raptors as they patrolled and fished a few ponds. Overall, the fishing action was kind of light but I was able to capture one entire sequence of an osprey as it made its dive and catch. This image is the final one before the bird hits the water and snags an unsuspecting fish. With those wings back and the talons extended, an osprey can reach speeds up to 70mph right before hitting the water!
