Call PETA; fish abuse...oh, wait.

Gotta love the shots where he's got one in each foot.

Incredible.

Unbelievable detail and action in those photos. I'm fascinated by the spread of the large feathers at the wingtips during the extreme wingbeats--wondering when I can get that on my kite. Those feathers have a huge impact on the osprey's capabilities, and they basically run on automatic.

So, how much autocad & windtunnel testing will it take to catch up with a million years' evolution?
