Yellow-billed Spoonbill

Yellow-billed Spoonbill (Image ID 43239)
CommentThis was one of those dawn field trips where all the conditions came together. I had planned a visit to this location after sighting some Spoonbills and waders there a few days earlier, it was well protected from a southerly breeze and allowed me to shoot with the light behind me. What I didn’t anticipate was the warmth of the sunrise on this morning, it was a brilliant reddish-pink and as it shone on the far bank it lit up the foliage in deep golden tones, amplified by the colour reflecting from red rooftops on the hillside. As this amazing light lit up the far bank, a Spoonbill walked towards me and I captured a colourful sunrise portrait with reflection.
