Captured this Roseate Spoonbill on Bunche beach, in Ft. Myers, Florida as the tide went out leaving the water low to create a great reflection on the bird as the sun came up. A
wading bird of the southern coasts, the Roseate Spoonbill uses its odd bill to strain small food items out of the water. Its bright pink coloring leads many Florida tourists to think they have seen a flamingo
