2/18/2011: thirds on Rosy Spoons

Are you satiated with spoonbills yet? I hope not since I have several more helpings, from my visits to Black Point Drive at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge last month.

This time I will throw in some mussels for variety, clinging to the roots of a dead mangroveā€¦and reflections in the water. Make a meal of it, so to speak.

Canon SD4000IS behind the 15-56x Vario eyepiece on the ZEISS DiaScope 65FL spotting scope for the equivalent field of view of a 3000mm lens @ 1/1000th @ ISO 200, f7.6 effective (scope limited).
