There is gold in here

Of the literally tens of thousands of osprey pictures on the internet I have found only one that shows a direct frontal similar to this shot. He knew I was standing there, but still came my way. A heart stopping event that I will remember forever. Strangely, though the largish pond does have many other kinds of fish, all the osprey that hunt here only go after the goldfish, No sure why. Long time residents say the goldfish have been in the pond for decades and probably released way back then for some religious reasons. It is also amazing that osprey fish right in the middle of a busy city.
