17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Osprey with Salmon

I was walking back to my car when I heard the unmistakable but very distant calls of an Osprey flying out over the ocean. When I firt heard it, I could only make out a speck in the distance, but as it drew closer, it was also flying lower. It got close enough to fill the frame with a fish that was larger than its body!
