Roseate Spoonbill Overload

Someone made the mistake of requesting more Roseate Spoonbills! I photograph the Spoonbills every trip to Merritt Island in January, when they are just coming into breeding plumage, and then again, hopefully, in April in St. Augustine in full breeding.

Late afternoon, almost sunset, light in all these shots. Partial backlighting in the last three. Once more the programmed auto in the Zeiss PhotoScope 85FL handles exposure very well in tricky situations.

In Lightroom, I added Clarity and Vibrance, reduced contrast to –20, and used the Sharpen Landscape preset. Blackpoint just slightly right.
