My daughter Rocky is crazy about fishing and I often use impromtu fishing excursions as an incentive for good performance at school. We went out one day last week immediately after school when she managed to stay awake during class after being caught dozing a couple of times earlier in the week. She had a wonderful time at the pond even though all she caught was an undersized blue gill.
The osprey was more successful and circled the pond several times to show off its prize before landing on a power pole where it devoured the fair sized trout. This picture was actually taken the day before my dauaghter's fishing trip. I had taken her to the pond in the hopes that she would be able to see the raptor in action but a feather was the only sign we found of it on that day.
