Weekly Photo Challenge : Unexpected- Birds at Viera Wetlands

web surprise rob paine

The coolest thing about photographing wildlife is you expect the unexpected, especially when you are visiting the Viera Wetlands in Florida.


The Viera Wetlands is located off Route 95 a little north of Melbourne, Florida. It is a bird watchers and photographers paradise. No matter what time of day you drop by and drive its wildlife loop, you are bound to see some fantastic scenes, such a baby sandhill crane looking for lunch with one of its parents, or be able to get up close and personal with a gigantic turtle, as shown below.

Look for more photos from Viera in upcoming blog posts!
