Beautiful morning of springtime photography at Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive, with nesting Anhgina & herons, Caspian Terns in flight
Late December is nesting season for Great Blue Herons at the Viera Wetlands. It’s fun to photograph their breeding behaviors.
Gray skies, moisture-filled air…but the Gray Kingbird put on a good show for me, as did the begging juvenile Barn Swallows and the tiny Black-necked Stilt babies.
Both springtime and Red-Winged Blackbirds are in the air at the Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive! Nesting is underway as birds molt into their breeding plumage
