Oh, I see. I know I didn't put it in any context at all. Sorry for the confusion.

I've always heard that they carry the fish aligned parallel to their body with the head pointing forward, but for whatever reason, I've always thought of that as more folklore than fact. Yet, there it is - in living color! Nice shot!

Oh yes, Osprey carry their catch that way. Maybe it enables them to fly easier than if they're fumbling with a big fish in one talon.

I never knew that, but now that I see you say that I can confirm that every time I see them carrying a fish the fish are facing forward. I just figured they were giving the fish a last look at the world that they will soon be departing....lol.
