Osprey Catches Dinner
We thought this was just such an amazing picture that we had to share it with you. An Osprey catches a fish and takes to the air with its meal. This fascinating shot was taken on the banks of Morro Bay in California.
They are very closely related to hawks but ospreys are unique among the raptor species. They have feet like owls and wings that bend when they are flying (look at the picture above). They can be found on each and every continent except for Antarctica (well, would you want to live there?). However, unlike many species of birds, ospreys look exactly the same wherever they live.
