Roseate Spoonbills in Flight


My last post shared Roseate Spoonbills foraging in the 10,000 Islands NWR.  After working the shallow water area from one end to the other, those Rosies took flight.

  1. Oh Wow! What an absolutely gorgeous sight! Yes, I’m sure you will never forget that – and lucky you to have captured it so beautifully!

      • Yes, we are. Still 4 days left to our self-isolation after coming back from 6 weeks of travel around the Mediterranean but we haven’t developed any symptoms yet so I think we are OK. We are slowly starting to post the pictures from our latest trip… which probably be the last for a while!

      • Glad to hear your home, almost done your self-isolation and still feeling well! It got a bit scary real fast for people out of their countries. Looking forward to your posts, Suzanne!

  2. It’s not often we see roseate spoonbills, and definitely not flying in flocks this big. I am impressed with these glorious photos, Donna, and lifted by the beauty. Many thanks.

  3. Aaahhhhhhh! Now I’m envious of you, Donna. I want a photo like any of those. Your photography is reaching the top! I’m happy for you, my friend. 🙂 👍 👍

  4. Beautiful blast of color! What a sight. Thanks for sharing the great photos and experience! William — “What a wildly wonderful world, God! You made it all, with Wisdom at Your side, made earth overflow with your wonderful creations.” Psalms 104 The Message

  5. Oh my! Hard to believe, but I think this one tops the previous spoonbill shots. The colors appear so much more vivid against the blue sky. Good show!!!

  6. Spoonbills are the best! Amazing how you caught them in flight – not easy! We have some nesting now in the marsh near our house.
