Back to Merritt Island – Florida

Merritt Island - Toby Gant -1719

On my recent trip to Florida, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to go back to Merritt Island and drive the Black Point Wildlife Drive again. I was pleased to see that the water levels all appear to be back to normal. And with the normal water levels there was wildlife everywhere. As a matter of fact, I think there was more birds than I have ever seen there at any one time. While following my normal modus operandi (searching for osprey), I stumbled across this magnificent bald eagle. Armed with only my 70-200mm VRII and 2x teleconverter, I was not able to get as close as I would have liked. But, I had a great time observing it all the same.
