It was exciting to spot a Bobcat. It was stalking slowly through the grass, but I only manage a single (poor) frame before it disappeared. I wish it had lingered for a few minutes so I could get a better shot.
Many photographers would agree that daylight savings time and “fall back” make it harder to get up for sunrise. We met at 6am last Friday for a photo expedition over to Merritt Island.
I haven’t been to Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge in a while (the last time was back in May!) and I miss the place. So I left around 6pm yesterday and headed over.
I don’t have much to say this morning, so the photos will have to do most of the talking.
We don’t have mountains here in Central Florida. And we don’t have very good waterfalls either. But our clouds are as good or better than anywhere else.
Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge and Viera Wetlands are two of my favorite places to photograph and I had time to visit both last week. They’re each wonderful and seem similar, yet they can be very different.
Reddish Egrets aren’t as common in Florida as some of our other wading birds. I seem to see them fairly reliably over on Blackpoint Wildlife Drive in the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge.
I haven’t done a sunrise in a while, so Kevin M. and I got up early this morning for a quick trip over to MINWR.
…this is a wonderful time of year to visit MINWR. There are lots of birds around, including many winter visitors and if you’re lucky you can see other wildlife too.
So we watched a nice sunrise, found some interesting birds, and enjoyed being out in nature. All in all, a very good morning.
