I was idly watching some mallards swim across the big pond at Magnolia Cemetery when I heard the splash. By the time I had him sighted he was out of the water.
Osprey often go completely under when they dive. I’m not sure this pond is deep enough for that but he still had to work very hard to get airborne with his catch.
Finally up in the air, the Osprey hung on to the fish with both feet.
A branch hanging over the water provided a perfect lunch spot with a view.
