The mighty Fish hawk

Anyone seen this video on an osprey catching fish? (The Osprey is also called a fish hawk). It's the only hawk whose diet consists solely of fresh fish.

First sequence he grabs a bunch of fish.

Second sequence he grabs a camoflaged flounder right off the bottom.

Third sequence: He grabs a salmon so big he can barely gain any altitude.

Absolutely stunning video, one of the best I have ever seen.
