Roseate Spoonbill Landing

Yesterday my father and I went out to Merritt Island. We saw nothing terribly unusual (we went in part to find a Neotropic Cormorant that was seen the day before, but we never located it), but there were several photographic moments. We went first to Black Point Wildlife Drive, and the lighting was pretty good. There was one pool with many wading birds and shorebirds close together. Rather than just giving a simple photographic overview of what we saw, I thought it would be fun do a series of posts of some of my favorite photographic moments from the hour we spent at this pool. Here’s a series of photos of a Roseate Spoonbill coming in to land. There must have been 15 or so spoonbills here, and over the course of the morning, I suspect we saw close to 50. But this one landing caught my attention.
