Another common name for Ospreys is Fish Hawks, a name richly deserved for their superb skills at diving onto swimming fish and plucking them out of the water to be eaten at leisure on a tree limb.  Look at those amazing fish catching talons.  I found this proud fisher on a detour from my normal commute from work this afternoon.  Lucky bird, unlucky fish, cycle of life: very lucky photographer.
