Just for the fun of it.....(Dial up warning)
...a series of pictures showing a pair of ospreys arguing over a fish (the fish in question is in the treed osprey's grip). This happened right outside my place.

2. Thanks, I got very lucky.....
...I heard the scree of the treed osprey, grabbed my camera and started shooting. I then heard the second one and kept training the camera on the treed bird. The second osprey flew perfectly into range and I captured the show.

5. Great photos. Do I see right? Did the second osprey successfully steal

the fish from the treed osprey?

Thanks for sharing the photos.
