Pic of the Day

     Roseate Spoonbill –­­ Saint Augustine Alligator Farm; St. Augustine, Florida:  On my first day at the alligator farm the evening light became quite spectacular.  About thirty minutes before sunset a storm blew-by just south of the farm filling the sky with dark clouds. The sun, shining from the west, illuminated the farm with soft golden light that bathed the bird as it perched high on a snag preening its feathers.  The dark clouds provided a perfect backdrop.  The light was splendid, and revealed every detail in the spoonbills feathers.
