Looks like breakfast, lunch and dinner. Impressive action and behavioral picture. That is a lot of weight for this Osprey to be carrying. Excellent work Krossed!
 
I believe this is a young female. I felt rather obligated to share her accomplishment, she tried for 30 minutes to wrangle something out of the river. I was cheering for her at this point, and when she flew over with her prize, we both felt victorious! Thank you for the kind words.
