nesting season @ viera wetlands 2012

osprey’s lunch–@ viera wetlands 3/12

we were leaving the wetlands after a visit there recently, when out of the corner of my eye i spotted this osprey…i’d noticed it flying around while i was looking at the nesting anhingas and blue herons, and figured it was looking for its’ lunch…apparently, it found lunch…and in this shot, the osprey is waiting for the fish in question to hurry up and die already, so that he can safely fly away to eat it without having it wriggle out of his grasp…we pulled over to watch it for awhile, and i have to say that the fish put up quite a fight…after watching for about ten minutes, the fish still wasn’t quite dead…and the osprey continued to wait, patiently, for his lunch to be ready to be eaten…
