Three more from Viera

I enjoyed Viera Wetlands so much the last time I visited, that when my friend Robert Wilson suggested we meet there I was more than willing to go again.  Here are three more photos showing some of what you can find there.

It's  not easy being greenIt’s not easy being green – A Pig Frog.  Believe it or not, these aren’t too hard to spot once you know what to look for.

Least BitternLeast Bittern – Most of the time they hide down deep in the reeds. This one hung out at the top for a bit.  It’s a little better look than the last one I posted.

A pair of ottersA pair of otters – We enjoyed watching these two take their morning dust bath on the dirt road.  I’ve seen them do this several times at Viera Wetlands.  The one on the right seems to have an injury to its mouth.  Robert thinks it might be a cleft palate.

I had a great time exploring Viera with Robert.  By the way, he’s an excellent photographer and really into digiscoping.  He explains what it is and shows some wonderful examples of his photos in this article he wrote on the Photography World site.  Well  worth a look!

Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. Now – go make some photos!

  1. Great shot of the Least Bittern. I was at Viera Wetlands today and saw four of them but none as clear and in the open as yours. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos.

    1. Thank you Bert. Viera Wetlands seems to have quite a few of the Least Bitterns. They must breed there. They are very shy and hard to photograph.

I'd love to hear from you, Please leave a reply!
