Roseate Spoonbill (audlt in its most splendid breeding plumage) – Estero Lagoon: Fort Myers Beach, Florida: As the year draws to a close and the North Alabama winter days wax colder, My thoughts turn to the warmth of Southern Florida and its birds. January is the month that begins the best time to shoot in Florida, with February to mid March being my favorite (I’m already planning my trips).
This will most likely be my last post for 2011. I will post again on the 1st of January, or so. I leave this year with a portrait of one of Florida’s most colorful birds, and a memory for myself of one of the best times I’ve ever had photographing our beautiful wild birds.
With less than 24 hours until 2012, I wish all of you a Happy New Year. I look forward to the next year of images and posts. Bobby
