Osprey Eating Fish

While watching an Osprey on a branch next to the ocean I saw the bird dive for a fish right in front of me. There have been many occasions when I have photographed an osprey with a fish in mid-air or on a branch eating;  but this time I got the actual capture of the fish! They catch the fish with their talons underwater and the bird partially submerged. Often they shake the water off their feathers before takeoff.
