I spent most of the past week shooting near Merritt Island and Viera Wetlands. On the last morning at Viera I set my tripod up at one location with the rising sun at my back. I also, fortunately, had the wind at my back. The tripod was not moved until it was time to pack up and start the drive home. The following are some of the shots from the hour and half at that one spot.

I suggest that Viera Wetlands is a place to put on your destination list.

Always #1 on my list whenever I get to Florida. All are excellent images, but I think the Bittern is my fav...

So, Roy, what you're saying, if I'm not mistaken, is that Viera might be a decent place to shoot some pictures?
;)

I can't pick a favorite among these. Nice job!

Once again, thanks everyone for the comments.
Viera is a place where for morning shooting of flying birds you just need to pick a place where the sun is at your back, there is water in front of you with short plants and some open water as well. Then just pay attention what is coming at you from the west and shoot everything. If only there was such a place near home!
