When osprey fish, they soar above the water until they spot their prey. Then they dive talons-first into the water, often submerging themselves completely.

After making a catch, osprey will adjust their grasp on the fish so that it faces forward. This aligns the fish with their direction of movement to make flying away more efficient.
