bird photography : roseate spoonbill

John saw his first Roseate Spoonbill at the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge on a cold November morning, but the far-off and huddled-down birds had not made for a good photograph. John was delighted to spot a pair in the tidal pools of Fort De Soto Park, and though the overcast skies didn't make for perfect lighting, John was still quite pleased with the images he captured.
