Have seen many fantastic shots and videos of osprey hitting the water and coming out with a huge beautiful fish. Although have watched osprey flying and going to the nest, have never seen or photographed the osprey catching a fish until this week. Took 300 photos at 20fps of the osprey as it left its perch on the tree, hit the water and came away with what looks like two small fish (though could be wrong about that). Now what to do with so many pics? Nice problem though to have. Below are a few, shot with my Z9, 500mm PF plus 1.7TC at f/9.5, 1/1600 and ISO 2500 (a bit overexposed as the sun hit the osprey and the log was in the wrong place, but not bad considering I was shooting from across the other side of the small lake):

I tried for two years to get this shot and finally, like you, succeeded. I feel your excitement. Nice work!
