An osprey swoops down and plucks a large fish from a pond.  The bird of prey hovered above the water before locating a rainbow trout just below the surface.<br />
<br />
It then folds up its wings and dives down with enough momentum to capture the fish.  The images were captured by amateur photographer Paul Masterton in the wilds of the Cairngorms National Park in Scotland.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
