I was forced to shoot into the sun to get these. Most times there is no way to really change the angle, unless you want to wade through water and reeds. I don’t.
Spoonbill will always pile up in the same spot no matter what else is available.
Half the time more keep landing until others are just pushed off the branches.
That didn’t happen when I shot these. It did a while later when I looked back from the trail.
