Brilliant take off picture with this spoonbill in a fabulous position. Excellent work ID! TFS!
 
Gorgeous colors, great eye contact and capture of the spread wings. I really like captures of birds doing things. Nice job!

I do, too! As long as I did cause them to do something. I love taking pics from my kayak. For some reason most birds aren't startled by it.
