Roseate Spoonbill first day of flying
Photographer: Andy Long
Location: St. Petersburg, FL
Took a boat out to a rookery island to capture all the behavior I could get. This young roseate was on the nest testing out its wings and all of a sudden it was flying. Was able to get it as it was coming back in for a landing.
