    It is truly an amazing sighting to see the Osprey putting them to use while catching a huge fish. There is some noise and loss of details, how big crop is this? Thanks for sharing.

    Murderous talons. While the talon of its hind toe strikes with force to capture prey, the Osprey configures its talons to two forwards and two backwards for holding slippery prey. Talons have similarity with Fish Owl (Natural History:30-07-2012 :Country Note Book:M. Krishnan). Nice capture. Thanks for sharing. SaktiWild
