Yellow-billed Spoonbill

Yellow-billed Spoonbill (Image ID 44874)
CommentA flock of Spoonbills arrived at a shallow beach pool where I had been shooting for a few hours. Laying at the pool's edge, I started to track them in flight as more birds arrived. This Spoony began circling me overhead and I was able to follow him in and capture this majestic touch-down pose with his wings outstretched, tail flared, and toes reaching for the water in some beautiful sidelight.
