Best fisherman of the day--a pair of Osprey

I checked the Osprey nest yesterday at the Pueblo State Park that I have watched being built. There had been more material added to the nest. The Osprey wasn't there but I found a pair fishing nearby. The bird in the top photo was perched above some people who were fishing. It did not seem concerned by me under it, probably due to its being used to having a lot of people around as this is a very busy state park. This is different than I have found with Osprey I have found perched in other, less busy areas.

Those fishing nearby were no match for these Osprey who each made one swoop and came up with a fish-in-talon as shown in the bottom pic.
