Wonderful footage of an osprey catching fish. View more osprey videos at www.arkive.org/osprey

Hovering at moderate height, the osprey dramatically plunges down feet first to snatch fish from the water’s surface. A shake of the head as it emerges from the water; the osprey carries its skilfully captured prey with its long talons.

More osprey videos can be found on www.arkive.org, along with videos of other birds of prey, fish and thousands more fascinating species.
