Photographer's Note

Summer at J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Reserve is usually a bad time to photograph wildlife, mainly due to the fact that most of the birds have migrated somewhere else for the summer season. However, this past summer was unusually active, especially with a large number of spoonbills. A large group of them had gathered together in this particular area and then slowly, almost one by one, they started to fly away pretty much right towards me which made for several great photo opportunities, but this shot by far was my favorite.

Canon 400mm f2.8 lens w/ 1.4x converter. At 1/1600th of a second there is still a little bit of movement in the wingtips but I like it, as long as the head and eyes are sharp.
