CommentAnother photo I got wet to get! It was sunrise and as I was laying there watching a small flock of spoonbills feeding a little too far away to photograph, hoping they'd come closer, this spoonbill flew in and circled me overhead a few times before landing right in front of me. It was difficult to track in a prone position so this image was taken just after it landed.
