Florida osprey photographed carrying a shark that is carrying a fish

(CNN) - The hunter becomes the hunted!

In April, a nature photographer along Florida's Gulf Coast captured some incredible images of an osprey with a fresh kill, flying hundreds of feet in the air.

The man who took the stunning pictures, Doc Jon, said he knew he took some great shots. But when he looked at them on his computer, they got even better.

He noticed that the prey, which he thought was a fish, was in fact a small shark.

Then, he saw the shark also had prey clenched in its jaws -- a small fish!

It was a lucky, double payday for the osprey.  I guess you could say: a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush or a fish in the talons is worth two in the nest!

The photos have been shared thousands of times since being posted.
