Roseate Spoonbill
Photographer: Ron Bielefeld
Location: East Central Florida
Story: 
I was photographing roseate spoonbills at a rookery. I was particularly interested in capturing the birds as they returned to their nest sites with nest building materials. I was lucky enough to capture this bird returning with a small stick. I particularly like the shadow of the beak and stick on the far wing.
