I know I'm not supposed to post four pictures in a thread, but that's the way this story needs to be told. Go ahead and beat me with a wet noodle

This is an Osprey on the hunt for a snack for it's young ones

I looked everywhere for a wet noodle but could not find one anywhere in town.

Excellent sequence.

Great job capturing the hunt.
I bought up all the wet noodles so Cal couldn't use them. Spaghetti anyone?

Nice work Mugmar.
