Here are some spoonbills

Discussion in 'Merritt Island I' started by mike mac, Feb 28, 2005.

  1. These have to be the strangest looking birds I saw on my trip, but they sure were fun to watch and were high om my list to capture. Here is a collection I took while down there.

  2. Mike -

    Great captures of this magnificent bird...
  3. Excellent Mike, you continue to put up impressive images. The spoonbills are certainly a worthy subject and you have really done them justice.

    Beautifully done Mike.

    I sure hope you attained the goal you were looking for in caputring these Beauties. Sure was tight quarters in that one pool.

    A couple weeks earlier there seemed to be more. However every day seems different.

    Thanks for sharing
  5. great shots mike, color and sharpness are great. Got some great "poses" too. We sure had a good time with them. At Reznicks Session, we were dying for this stuff.

    Hey Mike,

    Those are outstanding! Very nice work.
  8. Hi Mike

    This is awesome work. Please stop - I'm starting to feel inadequate :D 

    Just because your images are so good I'm going to get extra picky - I think your 1st image has a dust bunny almost right in the center. There - I feel better now 8)

    Keep'm coming!!

    Thansk reminds of the three little bears tale...jussst right, I never expected to catch these guys in flight one of the highligts of my trip, but then again seems as the whole trip was a highlight
  13. thanks Harry that small pool was amazing for sure

    You are too kind and yes I see the little sucker now, the dust down there was incredible, I spent about a 1/2 hour every night cleaning down the gear, guess the blower didn't get rid of this one. wplace to shoot
