The one that didn't get away...

The one that didn't get away...

An osprey with a large fish over Lake Shasta - the fish was almost as big as the bird itself.

We watched it fly with the fish for some time, the fish wildly flapping as it tried to get away. Finally the bird disappeared over a ridge, pursued by a small flock of turkey vultures that wanted their own slice of the osprey's fish supper.

Lake Shasta, California

Um, wow?

(And is the camera in your icon the actual camera you use? I'm wanting a new toy getting curious about equipment...)

Yes it is.

I use a Nikon D40X, with a mix of the default 18-50 kit lens and a Sigma 55-200 zoom. I'm a big fan of the Sigma :-)
