Spoonbills make for great photos, but I’ve found them to be a little hard to find. I photographed a few of them as they walked around a nearby golf course, but the photos I got were not really outstanding.
Then, I found a small pond about a mile from my house that for some reason attracted ducks, ibises and SPOONBILLS. The spoonbills and ibises liked to gather in the same tree, and that made for some good images.
I liked this one. He seems to be posing, and he’s kind of back-lit, so the sun outlines him and creates some good shadowing on his front side.
