I'm posting it for my wife. I hope the moderators won't have any problem with this. We were on the Bridge across from the nest and she said it is time to go as she was getting tired sitting in a walker. So I left and she was slowly getting ready. Then she shouted that they were coming home, however, by then I was already in a bad position. I post this picture as in five years we have been watching this nest, never seen the male bringing two fish at a time and never seen the male and female approaching the nest at the same time. The older sibling on the right was with them in a tree along the river and just landed a few seconds before. Sorry for the long story.
I hope you like the picture.

A great and very unique capture!!! Two fish, four Ospreys and nice light, along with no merges makes it special.

Really nice shot and story that goes with it. I never seen Osprey bring 2 fish at the same time. What a luck to capture that.

What a great story and image, Karl. The placement of the birds within the frame is excellent, and the spread wings and fish just add to the feeling of action. Excellent.

I say 'Very Well Done!' to your wife! A wonderful capture with all four in the frame, the parents returning at the same time, and the male carrying two fish! I've never seen that before, Karl. Well worth a click to see the tack sharp detail across the whole family with their different poses, and the warm light is beautiful! Excellent work.
