Best Use of a Boathouse for Fishing

The award goes to an Osprey, hanging upside down by one leg on a boathouse in Lake Minnetonka.
By hiding itself in the shadow of the boathouse, the osprey can wait undetected for its prey.
Most often, ospreys will hover above the water looking for fish, which makes up 99% of their diet.
This clever bird has figured out how to set up for an aerial dive with little effort and lots of disguise.
