I think one of the most amazing features on these birds, all wading birds actually, are their feet.
They are so huge, out of proportion to their bodies. And we think of raptors having vicious claws, wading birds are not far behind.
View large if possible, details are good on these shots.
This Spoonbill was not going anywhere so I was able to take my time with setup. I also had just attached my monopod.
