Wow! Great action shot. I love all the spray rising, and the wild look in the osprey's eye.

Very nice Sam, good motion blur on the wings. And a nicely timed capture with him catching his lunch. Smile

Brilliantly caught. The strength in these birds always amazes me. The way they can lift not only themselves, but a huge fish out of the water is awe inspiring!
