A Few Words of Wisdom

I just got back from spending a couple of days in Titusville, exploring the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge and the Orlando Wetlands Park.  While it is still fresh on my mind, I thought I’d pass along a few words of wisdom in case you might be considering such a fun photography trip.

Number One: If you have a heavy lens, be sure and take along a sexy camera caddie. 🙂

Number Two: Objects in lenses may be closer than they appear! (Hubby serves not only as camera caddie, but as gator spotter since my eyes tend to be glued to the sky and the water in search of cool birds.)

Number Three: Be sure and make time for a little reflection…okay…a lot of reflection!

Tri-colored Heron

Great Egret

Purple Gallinule

Little Blue Heron

Pied Billed Grebe

White Ibis

There will be more posts in the days ahead, but I had such a good time that I wanted to go ahead and get one shared! Stay tuned!
