MADEIRA BEACH, Fla. — A photographer got a unique presentation of the food chain while taking photos of an osprey on Florida's Gulf Coast.
On April 12, Doc Jon discovered the bird he took photos of in Madeira Beach was carrying a shark in its mouth – that was also carrying a fish.
"I go home, and I open it up and see (the photo) and I saw the tail first on the fish and realize it was a shark tail," Jon said, according to weather.com. "And then I zoom in and I'm like, 'Holy crap, that's a shark.' And then I see the fish in the mouth ... I just couldn't believe I had gotten that picture."
Jon told weather.com that the osprey was flying 400 feet in the air when he took the photo, and that he was lucky to get a clear shot.
Once Jon posted the bizarre phenomenon to his Facebook page, fans shared his photos more than 1,200 times.
