Roseate Spoonbill 012116g copy

A Roseate Spoonbill settles in after a short flight. The birds appear fairly awkward but when flying or stationary are so delicate in their looks. The pastel pinks of their feathers make for a perfect combination against the blue sky reflecting on the water. Beautiful to watch as they feed in the shallows or preen. Prehistoric looking from the neck up I would say though. I think my favorite part is the bright red eyes. Nature does it better than we could ever attempt.
