Roseate Sponbill
Photographer: Mark Boyd
Location: St. Augustine Alligatore Farm, Fl
Story: 
I spent a few days visiting the rookery at St. Augustine Alligator Farm in Florida. I took 1000's of pictures, but this is one of my favorites. I like how the afternoon sun illuminated the bird and created a deep shadow in the background resulting in a high contrast image coupled with a beautiful subject preening his colorful feathers creating a striking image.
