The fishermen weren’t catching anything, but the Osprey were. This one was sitting perched on a post near the shore of Lake Monroe mocking the fishermen. It was a sorry sight, really. The fishermen couldn’t come close to the skill of the Osprey. Well, they weren’t alone in their Osprey-jealousy, since apparently the Bald Eagles weren’t catching anything either.
Well, I’m sure they could, but they must have figured it would be easier just to steal fish from the Osprey. One eagle was farther out on lake Monroe chasing another Osprey with its fish. Eventually that Osprey resorted to dropping his fish to end the harassment from the eagle.
But this Osprey was happy and content, facing away from the lake and the gaze of eagles, his catch also likely hidden from view. I don’t know if that was intentional, but I like to think that it was.
