CommentOne of the resident ospreys in South Perth. This photo was taken alongside the cycle path by the river. I had seen one with its prey in this spot before (on the riverbank wall) but this was the first time I had my camera with me. The bird was too busy eating to be bothered by me or any of the other passers by. It had caught a sizable fish and it kept one foot firmly clamped down with its powerful talons to keep the fish in place.

Sigma 150-500mm, 270mm
LocationClose to Narrows Bridge, Swan River, Perth, Western Australia
