    While fly fishing in Yellowstone Nat'l Park, I have had these birds catch fish right in front of me! All the while when I wasn't able to catch a thing. AMAZING.

    Good video Jackie

    A few times when we have been sitting in the backyard, having a brewski or ten, we have had Ospreys dive down and drag a fish out of our pond, one snagged a big Bass, he landed not to far from us and started tearing it to pieces, he would look at us like, come try to take this away from me

    But when they have done it they let out a scream on the way down, it's really cool would love to get it on camera, but doubt I ever will

    Jack, we live about 50' off of St Joe bay. We get to see that live often! There is a dead tree between us and the bay. A couple weeks ago I watched an eagle plucking a duck. A couple minutes later the ducks' head popped up! He wasn't even dead yet! Gotta love nature. Mike

    What I would like to know is how do they get those pictures and at so many different angles

    As I said I've seen them but never when i had a camera, and even if I did it happens so quick I would never be able to get it

    Hey I have an idea, get a bunch of beer and sit by the bank of our lake and drink beer until one comes along

    I'd still miss it, probably be taking a leak when he did it
