I usually walk in my neighborhood several times a week. It’s a good way to get some exercise and say hello to folks. I did something different last Friday and drove over to Orlando Wetlands Park for my morning hike.
It was still dark when I arrived and I could hear owls and whistling ducks calling on the way out to Lake Searcy – one of my favorite landscape places. I didn’t like the view this time since the water was low and the appealing mirror like reflections were missing. I ended up moving to a new location for this:
Morning color was disappointing, but I do like the image. After sunrise, I wandered around and made some bird photos. There were many Little Blue Herons:
And the Palm Warblers are here in force, bobbing their tails as they pose in the reeds:
And here’s one of the whistling ducks. I caught it mid-preen:
The last time I was at Orlando Wetlands was in February. It was good to get back and a lovely walk. And carrying weights (photo equipment) made it better exercise. Plus, I made some photos!
Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. Now – go make some photos yourself!

Good morning Ed, nice place for photography, this is in my list to go, but looks like I need a bicycle, I’ve checked in their website it’s big wetlands but I hope I can go there next weekends. Nice photos, Thanks.
Thanks for the update on the wetlands. I plan to visit there this fall too.
Looks like you had a successful walk! Everytime you go there it is different! Fun to see what you saw!
Many thanks, folks.
Orlando Wetlands is a large place. A bike would come in handy if you want to see the whole thing.
No disrespect to your neighbourhood, but I doubt it would have provided us with such terrific shots!
Thank you Rhona. I seldom take a camera on neighborhood walks. Maybe I should.
