Viera Wetlands at Melbourne, Florida

Good morning,

We have made it a practice to spend a day in Melbourne, Florida, on our way to Port Canaveral and to Freedom of the Seas
Today's images were taken at Viera Wetlands where we always find so many beautiful creatures to photograph.

 This fellow appeared to be on guard duty.  :)

We absolutely love this place.  I'll be sharing a few more images from here before we return to Freedom of the Seas.

All the best,
Lois

Back you go! This stopover was rewarding for you in terms of fine bird photos. Have fun on the cruise.

I read there was a storm warning for Florida, possibly even tornadoes. I hope you two are safe.

Michelle said...

Beautiful pics! That bird, in the last shot, is so graceful!

Thanks, everyone, for your kind comments.

Yes, we had bad weather this afternoon, high winds, threat of tornadoes. It all happened before we sailed. It's pretty calm now. :)

Thanks for your concern.

Hugs,
Lois
