"Recent Snapshots"

The theme this week by Craver is "Recent Snapshots". Mac, Kathy, Craver, Lew and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that. You can see what others show on my side bar.

I have wanted to share this photo of an osprey that had caught a shad and was taking it back to it's nest. I hope it was feeding some baby osprey.
Here is the osprey as it tried to get out of the water with the shad. A little hard to see but a cool snapshot.
How about a snapshot of a turkey when I visited Turkey.
My biggest ever freshwater fish. A 31" 21# Carp on 6# test line, caught on a minnow under a bobber. What a surprise.
She was full of eggs, check the belly, it is a Fish Ohio Award fish.
My Fish Ohio Crappie which was 14" long.
See what the others have shown in my sidebar.

Hello there Tom
Great Header.... looks like it is going to be a hard fought challenge this week. Good luck to you all.

Great shot of osprey in flight! I thought your comment would be "that bird stole my fish". The carp is a beauty! I don't see osprey around here but they are in eastern Maryland.

What a wonderful wildlife photograph of the osprey with the fish!

Whoa... I'd like to see that Osprey try to carry this Carp away!
