Those Beautiful Red Birds!

One of my favorite wading birds is the Roseatte Spoonbill. Unfortunately, they are not seen in my neck of the woods. Here are a few images of these beautiful birds that I captured a few years ago while in Florida:

Can’t wait to get back to Florida … hope it’s sooner, rather than later!

    WOW…. the difference in the color of the underside of the spoonbills wings when opened up for flight! Interesting to see that distinctive difference!

  • Thanks for the comment, Alma! Yes, as the light changes, the colors appear to change, also. And in breeding plumage, the reds/pinks brighten even more :o)

    I also noticed a difference in the low angle of the sun on the red rock formations when in Arizona for a week in Jan. as the colors appeared much richer and deeper! :-)

  • Agree. Landscape images in that “golden hour” really can improve the images dramatically!
