    Best Video Capture I'll ever see

    Just got this sent to me by a friend.. An Osprey

    I've never seen a bird shake water off like a dog does - wouldn't want to get in the way of him when he's got his eyes locked and his talons in the "load" position!

    There are 3 sequences in this one video:

    1st sequence he catches half a dozen fish in one strike.

    2nd sequence he plunges talons into deep water right to the bottom to grab his prey.

    3rd sequence he captures a big old fat fish that looks as if it weighs more than he does!

    This is incredible to watch (best viewed in full screen mode)...enjoy!

    Actually, in the first sequence, it looks to me like he keeps grabbing more and more fish, rather than getting them all in one hit.
    Either way, it's some damned impressive footage.

    Wow, thanks for sharing this. The part I like best is the sequence where the BOP loses grip on the huge fish yet still manages to hang on with one talon, re-grabs the fish and flies "side saddle" - looked to me like a flying surfer. Fantastic!
