I photographed this Osprey at Lake Paradise in The Villages, FL, from the lovely little Schwartz Park. I took the photographs on Tuesday, May 22, 2018 late in the afternoon. The bird of prey was trying unsuccessfully to catch a tasty fish for its meal. The lake is very high right now since we have had a lot of rain recently. I have been seeing many Canada Geese, the resident Great Blue Heron, a few ducks, a few egrets and Anhingas but this is the first Osprey here in several weeks that I have photographed. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture. Enjoy!
