One of the fishing piers at the west causeway under Jensen Beach bridge, looking north at the Indian River Lagoon. Guys were netting fish. A couple of members of the heron family were lurking nearby.

Looking toward the mainland, I spotted an Anhinga drying its feathers, its back to the sun, in classic Anhinga pose.

An Osprey was fishing the Indian River Lagoon. That’s the Florida Power & Light nuke plant in the distance.

Anhinga was not happy with the dog and me being so close. We gave it some room to keep sunning.
