Osprey Dive Hard

The actual Osprey dive is shown below, but I thought the real action was as it hit the water. Hard and loud. I selected that as the page featured photograph.

Osprey dive from between 30 to 100 feet, straight down.

Their 6 foot wing span helps lift them from the water, yet I have seen them float for a few minutes as if catching their breath from the crash landing.

It’s never easy to photograph this but so rewarding when you manage it.
