Royal Spoonbill

Royal Spoonbill (Image ID 38353)
CommentI had to underexpose this photo quite a bit so that the plumage of the spoonbill would not be blown out. As a result the surrounds have darkened and the subject pops from the background. The pale reflections of the bird and something in the background also leads the eye to the subject. The overall impact of the scene makes this my favourite shot for 2019.
