Musings from my Lanai

At the back of my home there is a Lanai (in truth it is a screened in porch) which looks out  on a retention pond (an essential feature in lowland Florida, without which we'd all be up to our calves in water).

This retention pond has become a sanctuary for fishes, turtles, and birds (no alligators to date!),

As I looked out today I  watched as an Osprey flopped into the pond, and then emerged with a fish in his.her talons.

She/he took the fish onto the flat roof of my immediate neighbour's home, where he/she enjoyed a good supper.

What joy
