Osprey Having Sushi

WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT

These images might be upsetting to some people.  If you might be bothered by the sight of a wild animal eating another wild animal, leave now.

We found this Osprey sitting in an old tree on the shore of Lake Overholser in Oklahoma City.  He had just caught this rather large fish.  He just sat there for the longest time, looking around, watching out for who knows what.  It was about 20 minutes after we arrived before he began to systematically tear into the fish with his razor-sharp beak, just chowing down on what must have been, to him, a gourmet meal.
