Very good image quality. What an unusual bird. If Barbera Cartland were ever reincarnated...:)

Nice shots there. I wish I had my 400 when I visited Ding Darling. We took a tour and saw a bunch of these guys at one of the stopping points. I like #2 the best.

That's a great catch Jim, such an unusual looking colour.

I was just there last week but wasn't able to get any close shots of Spoonbills at all. Great job on these. I'd be jumping up and down if they were mine.

Great job on the Spoonbills Jim; all high quality captures for sure.
I really like the 2nd image with the straight on approach, but I can't help but chuckle at how ungainly they look while landing. I guess it's hard if you've got such long legs.
