Osprey on The Hunt

This past July while on vacation in the Grand Tetons we came across this Osprey hunting by a dam.  We were there shooting landscapes (which I will be posting at a later date) but I just had to stop and try to get a quick shot.  I quickly changed to my long lens and headed to the bank.  The Osprey made a couple of passes before moving on.  I was hoping to see a catch, instead it made a few dives but pulled up at the last minute.  All well worth the effort!
