16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Osprey with Catch

Osprey dive for fish as seen from my back patio over the Chesapeake Bay. These amazing raptors do the hard work , finding, and catching fish from early spring until October when they head south. I can only imagine what the poor fish is thinking, "Like a minute ago I was swimming, now I am flying!"
