Osprey (Pandion haliaetus) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1078)
Canada (Ontario) Kingston - Wolfe Island. A nice-sized pike for lunch. It's great to have new subjects to shoot. Spring has been very slow with more winter weather to come this weekend.

That is truly amazing. Very well done and that looks like a good sized lunch.

And now for the backstory. Sorry to say that lunch was late that day. Moments after the shot was taken an adult Bald Eagle gave chase and over a couple of minutes managed to dislodge the fish. It fell to earth somewhere and the Osprey flew off with the eagle harassing it. Then the eagle moved on so lunch was left for the foxes or Crows.

This is one of the few times I have seen an Osprey leave the head on its catch. Works for me.
