I love watching spoonbills feed, sifting from side to side. Sunday night this bird was wary as it had just flown into a new spot and wouldn't feed, but it was more at home yesterday morning.
The black details on the face and plume are very fine. The silly thing was that I had been having trouble getting a good egret shot (see a couple of posts back), and when I then tried to get the spoonbill, the egret wouldn't get out of the frame!
