I was fortunate to see this Osprey catch a fish and take it to a tree for an all day meal. I didn't hang around that long but based on the size it would likely take a long time to eat.

1. The catch.

2. First tasting.

3. Celebration! It's a good one.

4. Eat your fill.

Lovely shots, Don, and its great that you got it not only with prey but eating said prey and celebrating the catch too. :-) and that is some large fish.
