Osprey’s Big Splash

This Osprey was circling and fishing on the far side of the lake. The first attempt she did not catch anything. On the second attempt she caught a small fish and flew off. She hit the water hard and made quite a large splash. The following is the sequence of hitting the water, then exiting flying off with her meal. The whole sequence was under 5 seconds.
