Osprey shows off the catch of the day

A totally chance encounter with this awesome bird of prey. I stopped at an area open space to grab some pics of some pelicans and herons. As I got out of my truck, I see a large bird heading right for me.

Quickly I throw up my camera and start snapping pictures, capturing a great sequence of this handsome fellow as he flew over. He had managed to catch himself a really nice-sized fish (carp?) and was keen to show it off.

I do occasionally see osprey at this spot but have yet to find a nest. Taken in Adams County, Colorado.
