Pic of the Day

Roseate Spoonbill, Platalea ajaja:  Black Point Wildlife Drive; Merritt Island NWR, Florida
    Spoonbills were just splendid on my last couple of trips to Merritt Island NWR near Titusville, Florida.  I always love photographing these birds.  They often put on a great show either feeding or preening.  This spoonbill was walking through one of the impoundments and happened to start squawking at nearby ibis (out of frame), giving life to the image.
