Another great capture! You must have a problem with invasive fish up there and the Ospreys are handling it well! Almost looks like a Koi. That would be an expensive meal.

Yes, it does have a 'koi' look about it.

Wonderful shot, Karl!  it looks like its riding a jet-ski.

I like this one a lot better than the first one. Way better head angle and angle in the frame.
Fish looks just as big and the action is great..

This doesn't happen often on or near your shadow line, and you got it right on your shadow line. Nice capture.
