Osprey hunts

So surprised to see this animal flying towards me. We were walking and I turned to look behind us and say the bird of prey coming towards us. I knew instantly it was a bird of prey and guessed it might be a Osprey. I lifted up my camera and made a some very quick adjustments. zooming out form 200 to 70 I got 4 or 5 frames before it was so close it would not fit in the frame. really pleased with the results on this one because birds of prey in flight are extremely difficult to shot well and they eyes are great in this one
