Clacking Bills by Bonnie T.  Barry
Clear

I photographed these Roseate Spoonbills in Iberia Parish, Louisiana, USA. These two were clacking their bills. I’m not sure if it was war or love! After hearing from a seasoned naturalist, I further discovered these are two yearlings and they are probably playing! Nikon D4; Nikkor 500mm lens, Nikkor 2.0 teleconverter; Aperture Priority; f/8; 1/400s.
