- Brief Directions: Take Exit 191 off of Interstate 95 in Viera, Florida. Go west on Wickham Road until the road ends at the water treatment facility, and signs direct you to Viera Wetlands on the west side of the building.

- Description: The fog had been hanging thick and low, even later into the morning, when I spotted this lone osprey perched on a snag in the middle of the pond. The sun was rising quickly, and the fog was burning off. I ended up parallel to the bird just as the sun reached the point behind it, and the lingering fog acted as a diffuser, allowing me to capture this great composition and color.
- Gear: Canon EOS 40D, 100-400mm IS USM f/5.6 lens, handheld braced on car window
