Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve, Lake Balboa, CA
I was thrilled to witness this osprey dive and catch a fish. I had no idea they completely submerge themselves, feet first, in the water. This one struggled for a while to come to the surface. When he finally did, he had a perch the size of his own body locked in his talons.
