The Elusive Roseate Spoonbill

The beautiful pink Roseate Spoonbill has been hard to find this year (2018), so I was super excited to find five of them at Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, feeding and happily ignoring a handful of nature enthusiasts. In this image, two of them walked up on the bank to survey the scene. In the next moment they were back in the shallow water, sweeping the ground for food.

Looking right and left, these Roseate Spoonbills stand tall in the dappled light. You can see the shape of their bills and the color of their wings.
