Fishing Raptor

I'm not sure what species of raptor this is, but I caught it fishing,
mid-dive. The first three photos were taken as consecutive frames,
one-third of a second apart.

Nice! How did you manage to capture the sequence? Were you hoping for something exciting out of the bird, or just sort of right place right time lucky?

I had just finished taking several photos of it flying when it started to dive. So I aimed for the river and held down the shutter button. The images I posted are cropped from larger images, though, so I wasn't quite so lucky as they make it look.

Idaho? Looks like the area around Cour'de Alain (sp?).
