Jon called his snapshots of the food chain in motion the best photo he had ever taken.

“I saw an osprey with a fish,” He posted on Facebook. When I looked on my computer I saw the fish’s tail was that of a shark. Then zooming and cleaning up the photo noticed the shark is eating a fish!”

Jon said the photos contained no editing trickery.

He snapped the photos along Hubbard's Marina in Madeira Beach, FL.

According to FOX 13, the type of shark seen in the photo is undetermined, but may be a blacktip, bonnethead, or nurse shark, all of which are common in the area.

FOX News also shared the story, as did several other news outlets, and some international media, including this one from Sweden.

Jon shared the link to the Swedish article on Facebook with the comment, “I’m Big in Sweden.”
