Ace the DareDevil father Osprey took a calculated risk and dared the river waters flowing between the walls of the tailrace to go fishing. He appeared out over the lake, flew over the top of the dam, without hesitation dropped in-between the walls, and caught a rather large fish for his chicks. The fish probably weighs about 2 pounds … Dad Osprey weighs somewhere about 4 pounds. Awesome feat of fishing! GO ACE GO!!!
PS: the green tint to the lower right of the slides is actually the leaves of some grass between my lens and the action.

What is that in the water? Looks like ice.

Does look a bit like ice, but it is not Water mixed with saponins makes foam. Saponin: chemical compound found in certain plants that when mixed with water makes a stable foam. The pressure of the water as it shoots out from the dam will sometimes make this foam. Also the water is coming off the bottom of the lake and so has a high degree of plant detritus and therefore saponins.
