Morning Catch!

This image was taken on February 19, 2013 at Hilton Head Island with a Nikon D7000 camera, ISO 1000, 1/4000 sec, F5.6, and 70-300mm lens. #6228
It was about 8 am. This male osprey was showing off for the female as it was mating season. After he showed his catch to his mate, he flew off the nest and flew right above where I was standing. That's how I captured this amazing picture as he was looking straight into my camera. He later caught another fish and brought it to his mate.
