On vacation in Florida this fall, I was impressed by the fishing exploits of the local ospreys. This shot in particular captured the essence of what I was watching - the shock on the face of the fish is clear, unable as it was to compete with the powerful talons of the bird, which have clearly been used to full gory effect.

Location: Tierra Verde, Pinellas County, Florida, USA
