Mother Roseate and her chicks by 

I took this photo of a mother Roseate Spoonbill and her three chicks at the Jefferson Island rookery in Iberia Parish in southern Louisiana. This was the first time I’ve been able to get a close look at nesting roseate spoonbills after the babies hatched.

I took this photo with a Nikkor 500mm lens, Nikon D300 camera.

    The sweetest family photo Bonnie! The colours and composition are just gorgeous. That is a very watchful mother, the babies look like they’re thriving.

    Bonnie, this is so beautiful! If you look at the mother’s eye, you see that she is very aware of you. She is actually looking at YOU. Birds have very sharp eyesight. She is standing over her brood, smiling, kind of standing back and letting you see how beautiful they are, and she’s very proud of them, indulgent. This is priceless! As usual, Bonnie! You’re incredible. And I’ve NEVER seen Spoonbill babies! EVER! This is certainly the BEST part of my whole day!
