Roseate Spoonbill FlyBy

As I was photographing birds on nests at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm, this Roseate Spoonbill flew by overhead. The sun overhead was so bright that it really lit up the wings as it flew by giving a lot of detail in the wings and feathers.

  1. You got it, man. Fabulous. I run hot and cold on whether these really are pretty birds, but this one surely is gorgeous. (I’ve not done any blog postings since March; it’s time to post some of my Alligator Farm harvest.) You’ve shone some fine stuff here.

    • Thanks John! I agree on the Spoonbills! But coming from up North where they usually never come here they are colorful and funky enough to be cool! About 10 years ago one did wander up North to NJ and was at the Brigantine Division of Edwin B. Forsythe NWR for a season. I actually got quite a few images of it. It seemed to like to hang out with the Great Egrets. But it definitely stood out against the other birds!
