It's not that easy to find a desolate beach in Florida. So, I was thrilled when I strolled around the corner at Lovers Key State Park and saw this deserted scene. I encountered one other person on this stretch of beach and he was doing what I was doing: meandering along taking pictures with his DSLR. (If you zoom into the middle of the photo you can see him. Otherwise, he blends into the background quite nicely.) This is a wide shot of the area where I took the last two photos I've posted. You see how close the green treetops are to the Gulf of Mexico? That's what makes this area so inviting to ospreys. Tomorrow we'll take another up close and personal view of this popular bird of prey.
