More About Roseate Spoonbills

Okay, can you stand some more talk about the Roseate Spoonbills?  I feel like I have touched on them several times the past couple of weeks, but I think I’ve finally hit perfection this morning, so maybe no more after this.  They are so new to me, since I had never seen one before.  I have been struck by their beauty.

The following two pictures were shot in the RAW format, then edited and converted to JPEGs in Photoshop Elements.  For you that are interested with such information, I photographed these  images with my Canon EOS 7D, with a Canon f4-5.6 100-400 IS  zoom lens.  The ISO was 800, shutter speed 1/4000, aperture f8 with an EV adjustment of minus .03.  That adjustment was for the bright whites that were caused by the early morning sun.  I hope you enjoy the images.  Click on either one to see an enlargement.
