So, (after another visit to Merritt Island in the summer months) I can say if you are searching for an abundance of wading birds, your best bet would be springtime. There are still some wading birds. There are also plenty of alligators and snakes this time of year. However, I spent most of my time this visit enjoying the scenery and the moment.
I captured this image using my 16-35mm f/4 tripod mounted. Thanks as always for stopping by.
