Roseate Spoonbill Being My Model

If I had to choose just one model… why not a tall, elegant, pink bird.

This one bird stayed behind as the flock moved along feeding. Several times he looked directly at me but did not move off.

I did switch my camera to ‘silent’ shooting here. The sounds of fast shutter clicks made him hesitate several times. I was also behind tall reeds.

There are probably too many photographs here, but really this opportunity only happens a few times a year.

The morning light was perfect. Another time of day and glare might have ruined these shots.
