Osprey in action

July 26th, 2014

These images of an osprey were taken at 9pm with the light rapidly fading. The osprey flew out of the tree and dived into the water to catch a fish; however a heron was waiting on the bank and attacked it hoping it would drop the fish. The osprey may have caught a fish but in its haste to get away from the heron it lost it and emerged rapidly with no fish. The whole sequence from the dive into the water to flying off took just 5 seconds.
