Got this shot at the “Click Ponds” which are located adjacent to the Viera Wetlands in Viera, FL. They had been draining the ponds and water was low, so lots of wading birds showed up! There were Wood Storks, Spoonbills, White Pelicans, Egrets, Herons, Osprey and even an Eagle flew overhead. This guy flew in close to where I was standing and I got lucky! Taken with a Nikon D5000 with a Sigma 150-500 mm lens.

    Very dramatic shot! Very dramatic bird, as well.
