Expect the Unexpected

Just when I was lamenting my lack of time for birding, I had one of those moments! My wife and I packed our granddaughter in the car and headed for North Shore Drive in Saint Petersburg, and luckily I brought the camera. For, what should happen to appear, in the golden hour before sunset, but two beautiful roseate spoonbills. And a reddish egret, in full breeding plumage and playful splendor.

Here are a couple of shots of the spoonbills; I’ll post some of the egret tomorrow.

Beautiful birds, aren’t they? These were processed in Lightroom 2 and Photoshop CS5, with a tiny bit of help from Topaz Adjust (just an accent). Enjoy!
