Osprey early morning catch

BLACK AND WHITE – Winner

Some days I spend 3–4 hours paddling and drifting in my canoe looking for wildlife. The canoe is great as it does not disturb the wildlife, and you become one with nature. This Osprey (Pandion cristatus) had just caught a fish and flew directly at me. It was a great moment.
