I made my first trip to this reserve, which is near Lakeland, FL. It is very spread out, but has lots of activity. Well worth the trip for sure! There is lots of variety as in ducks, herons, snipe's, eagles, hawks, spoonbills, etc this time of year. These are just a few of the images caught yesterday am. All post processed in NX2.

Nice shots.

I live in Lakeland and haven't been there yet :redface:

Although, the longest lens I have is the 55-200 kit lens, so I think I might want to wait until I at least get a 70-200 2.8 anyway :biggrin:

Nice shooting, Nancy! It really is a gem of a place if you are nearby. I had good luck there last Jan and Feb. There were thousands of white pelicans in the lake and many cranes. A true abundance of species.

Great job on these , Nancy! The second shot is tack sharp. I'm going to have to give the 70-300 more consideration as a light birding lens. Thanks for posting these.

Well done Nancy, love those Whistling Ducks. I'll have to try making it to this reserve on my next trip to Florida.

Very nice images. A must visit place that's on my list.

Superb shooting.

Well done Nancy.

Great shots Nancy. Ducks are fast fliers. Tough to catch.

Thanks all for the nice comments!!
