As you can tell from today’s selection of photographs, our time at Viera Wetlands yesterday was wonderful. Lots of action from about 8:00 – 10:00 am and then again from about 3:00 pm until 6:00 pm. A thunderstorm whistled through the area in the afternoon but we ducked into the Vue to stay dry and waited out the rain before starting to shoot again. One thing I learned yesterday afternoon is to have two cameras on the go instead of only one. That way I can have my big lens on the tripod and my 300 mm lens mounted on my Canon 5D mk II for flight shots. Makes it a lot easier than having to switch lens on one camera all the time.
We are heading for Orlando Wetlands in Christmas, FL in the morning for a little more birding. Reports are there is plenty of activity there at the present time.
