This roseate spoonbill in flight is a lovely flash of pink in the sky. I took this at Jefferson Island in Iberia Parish, Louisiana, at a very lively rookery. It was a joy to watch cattle egrets, great white egrets, ibis, little blue herons, and roseate spoonbills all busy in the nesting activities of the season.

    Continuing to work on your in-flight techniques, eh? Nice capture Bonnie!! The pink against the blue is very nice and I like how the light shows through the wings. That rookery sounds like a great place to get some nice shots.

    Love those Spoonbills ! I see them all the time on the flat at coconut in Fl. I have been tryin got get a great shot of them grooming but I only have a 300mm and I can’t seem to get any closer then 25 feet, I m guessing. I think they are getting use to me. One of these days I will get one as good as yours/
