Egrets, spoonbills and ibises at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge
near Titusville, Florida
One week ago today I was at Merritt Island NWR photographing birds. I found this feeding frenzy of wading birds along the Black Point Wildlife Drive just before sunrise. Using my van as a blind the birds paid no attention to my presence and went about their feeding activity. I don't often shoot birds with a wide-angle lens, but I must admit that I do love the scene here with so many birds spread across the landscape.
