MINWR Field Workshop

January 25, 2019 – 7:00 AM field trip to Merrit Island National WIldlife Refuge, Black Point Drive yielded some decent images once the clouds dissipated and we got some good light. The day prior was a washout because of the storm that came through the area – high winds, heavy rains and reports of tornados.

This year the number of Glossy Ibis in the reserve is exceptional. I have never seen so many flocks of 20 Ibis or more.

On the other hand, the Roseate Spoonbills are not as abundant as in past years.

Reddish Egret at Ding Darling NWR

Managed a little time at the Ding Darling NWR on Sanibel Island.  The Reddish were very active but because of the water levels remained at a distance.  These two images were captured using the Panasonic Lumix G85 and the Leica 100 – 400 mm lens.  It is nice to have an 800 mm equivalence.
