Well, Happy Easter, happy April Fools Day, and happy Chinese Space Station Crashing to Earth Day! Instead of writing about any of that, I have some photos from an early March visit to Orlando Wetlands Park that I want to share.
I had the place to myself when I arrived that morning. It was fun to wander around and look for compositions even though the sunrise colors weren’t that good. I made this dawn landscape looking North over Lake Searcy. It was dead calm and the water was a perfect mirror.
Spoonbill numbers seem to be increasing around Central Florida. I’ve spotted them recently at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge and Circle B Bar Reserve, and they’ve been very plentiful at Orlando Wetlands too. They’re a bit rare in ordinary life so I always enjoy seeing them.
This back-lit flock landing in the early light was lovely.
I don’t feature Coots in the blog very often, but I enjoyed watching this group. They often race across the surface of the water and squabble over who gets the best spots. These two seemed to be competing.
Spring is a great time of year to get out and explore nature in Central Florida. There’s a lot going on and the variety of birds is especially good. You can see all my posts about Orlando Wetlands at this link: https://edrosack.com/category/orlando-wetlands/
And you can view more images from there in this album on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/edrosack/albums/72157639616792296
Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. Now – go make some photos!
