MADEIRA BEACH, Fla. (WISN) — Talk about being in the right place at the right time.

On April 12, photographer Doc Jon was taking photos along Florida's Gulf Coast when he decided to focus on an osprey that was flying above him.

It wasn't until he got home and looked at the photos on his computer that he realized exactly what he had captured.

Jon's photos show the osprey carrying a shark. But that's not all: The shark is holding a fish at the same time.

"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 told "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 said the osprey was flying about 400 feet above him when he took the pictures, and he was lucky to get such a clear image.

The photos have since been shared on Facebook over 3,000 times.
