Terrific pose, head turn, eye contact, colors, background, and composition. Three terrific spoonbill posts ID! TFS!
 
LOL, um, yes that beautiful Spoonbill should cut back on sugar and fats! Very nice portrait.
 
Thanks you all! The rookery was in a mangrove tree surrounded by water. So I could go all the way around it. I don't know why they aren't spooked by a birder in a kayak, but it's cool they are not because I don't have a very long lens.
