Roseate Spoonbill Flyby

Roseate Spoonbills are one of my favorite Florida birds to photograph! Plus they are a large colorful bird that fills the frame & stands out in photos. In this image I really liked the outstretched wings showing the feather detail and the size of the wingspan. Their wingspan on average is 47 to 52 inches. Image taken at J.N. Ding Darling NWR in Florida a few years ago with a 300mm lens, 1.4X teleconverter on a Canon 7D.

  1. Wonderful capture, Reed. They are incredible birds. I remember going to Ding Darling way back in the 80’s as a fledgling photographer. I was amazed. 🙂

    • Thanks so much Jane! Because of COVID we did not get to Florida this year, but have a lot of images from previous visits! Just going through the archives finding images to post. Not to much to photograph at the local parks at the moment.😊
