An osprey scrapes the surface of a stream with its lethal talons, probably to scare fish beneath the surface. August 2010 in the Alton Baker area of Eugene, Oregon.

Fantastic shot Ken, that’s a one-of spectacular shot!
Thank you! As the osprey cruised towards the water I got a series of shots. The lighting changed a bit. Here it’s nice and summery, and in the next second he passed through a shadowy area, so the lighting on Mercy! is different, and dramatic in its own way.
