Roseate Spoonbill In Flight

This has been on my must photograph list for a long time. When we shot in the everglades we never saw a single bird. South Carolina is too far north for these tropical birds. However, recently they have expanded to the low country.

A simple in flight is always my favorite type of shot. We photographed birds much closer but as usual I lean towards images that include the environment as well as the bird.

    1. Thank you. A photo I have been trying to get for awhile. They typically are in Florida. South Carolina coastal low country is starting to get in their range now.

    1. We finally found them. Looks to be a small flock too. This means they might just make the Lowcountry part of their range. A true tropical bird but South Carolina is pretty tropical 9 months a year.
