Spoonbill (Platalea leucorodia)

From summer 2013.I took this one down at Slimbridge WWT, it had been there 2 weeks, but it flew on. It wasn't one of my best, because it has the sun to right side, very bad!!!!!!!

  2. The last one is a wonderful shot. It's a place I should visit but I doubt it welcomes dogs.

  6. Impressive looking bird! I have never seen one of these. It's so hard to photograph white birds in bright sunlight.

  7. Gratulation, Bob,
    Es ist bestimmt nicht leicht, diesen Löffler so
    gut auf die Platte zu bannen.
    Einen schönen Abend wünscht Dir
    Irmi

  8. Ptak jest śliczny, a ja go najbardziej podziwiam za jego niespotykany dziób. Pozdrawiam.
    The bird is pretty, and I admire him most for his unusual beak. Yours.

  10. Cuatro interesantes fotografías, lástima que en la última de ellas la espátula no aparezca completa pues creo que viéndose todo el ave sería aún mejor. Un abrazo,

  18. I'd be pleased with any of these Bob - a bird just doesn't understand about quite where you'd like them to stand .... or land do they?! I like the yin/yan, light/shade thing happening
