Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    Beautiful, Dot — great lighting!

  • Thank you, Monnie. Too bad the end of its beak is in the water…you can’t see the spoon-shaped end of it. Next trip I hope to get a better shot of a spoonbill.

    Perfect color and lighting!

  • Thanks! Remember the hard time I was having photographing the spoonbills? I had to use a filter to help this one. Next trip I hope to get better shots, maybe with their wings up…they are really pretty birds.
