Mystery solved

Well, I thought this one would be just a bit harder than usual, but that FloridaCracker dude is just too dawgawn good!

One of my very favourite subjects is the roseate spoonbill. This one was quite a surprise, standing in a retention pond in a very upscale subdivision. He ignored me for a while.

After a couple dozen shots, he reckoned he'd had enough. The look, it seems, is universal.

Oh NOW I see how you got that shot. I could not figure out what you were doing crawling around beneath a spoonbill!
Love that down the nose shot ... very duckish.

FC, he was certainly the most obliging spoonbill I've ever met. But I doubt he'd be THAT obliging. And I've learned to NOT stand UNDER a bird... 'specially one that big!

Meems, it's early yet, I'll be wrong... a lot. LOL!
