Osprey with large fish

This large Hawk is unique in it’s ability to dive into shallow water for fish. The Osprey is also unique among hawks because their diet consists almost solely of live fish. 

Ospreys have barbs on their feet to help them grip the slippery fish.  Amazingly they are successful in catching fish about 70% of the time!  This one has quite a large meal in it’s talons as it flies away to have dinner.
