16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Osprey with recent catch

In my yard is old oak with many dead branches perfect for birds of prey to sit on and munch their meals. On this day, an Osprey settled into the tree with a large crappie it had caught in the pond next to my house. I was able to snap some photos without disturbing the Osprey.
