    Found 3 different Vermilion Flycatchers at the Orlando Wetlands this morning. These birds reside in the southwest of the U.S......unusual to see one here in Central Florida!


    Focal distance 33 meters away and dam are they fast!

    #2 and #5 are cool to me. Too bad the others didn't freeze the little guys movement.
    Keep shooting!!
